Hi delegates! My name is Amanda Haddad Amorim, I am currently a junior studying in the International School of Panama. I was born in Brazil, though only lived there for four months. I was also fortunate enough to have lived in the United States for five years, Luxembourg for seven years and am currently in my fourth year here in Panama. Alongside debating, I am thoroughly passionate about psychology, history and am one of the leaders of the Girl Up club here in ISP. My hobbies include exercising, spending time with friends and family, reading, cooking and listening to podcasts. Furthermore, I am beyond excited to be participating in PANAMUN for the third time, and for the first time as a chair in PANAMUN XXX for the Middle School Human Rights Council. I admire how MUN not only allows but encourages students to speak upon relevant issues that matter to our world and to ourselves. Viewing issues from other countries perspectives also incentives individuals to adapt an open mind, whilst fighting for a matter that may not necessarily comply with our personal beliefs. This is a great opportunity to forecast innovative skills and even meet incredible people on the way. I am truly looking forward to hearing all your ideas, listen to your thoughts and most importantly meeting you all!

Felipe Correa

Hi, delegates! My name is Felipe Correa and I would like to give you all a warm welcome to PANAMUN XXX. I am currently a Senior at the International School of Panama and I am very excited to be one of the chairs of the Human Rights Council and meet all of you. I was born in Bogotá, Colombia but I’m also American and I’ve lived in four different countries. Some of my hobbies include playing sports like tennis, soccer, and basketball, playing the guitar, and reading. This will be my fourth time participating in PANAMUN (I was a delegate in SOCHUM and UNPBC, and a Chair for MS UNICEF in previous conferences) and I am very happy to be chairing for a second time. I am also very honored to be one of the three MS Diplomacy Heads this year which I am very happy about. I love debating because it is all about seeing different perspectives and points of view while learning to respect them even when you disagree with them. These past two years and a half have been tough on everybody which is why the theme of this PANAMUN is all about new beginnings and helping the world move towards a brighter future. I know we are going to have an amazing time and learn new things this October. I look forward to seeing all of you!


Larissa de Melo

Hello, delegates! My name is Larissa de Melo. I am currently in my freshman year of high school at ISP and I am honored to be a chair of the MS Human Rights Council at this year’s PANAMUN! I was born in Brazil in the state of Sao Paulo and lived there until 2016; then I moved to Panama and since then, I have lived here. My first experience with MUN was at the beginning of 9th grade, since then I have done multiple online and in-person debates. My love for debating has grown since then, as debating gives me a voice to fight for issues that happen in our community. I consider myself a person who fights for what I believe in, so by joining MUN conferences I get the chance to research countries' views and perspectives on issues. Apart from debating, I love baking, listening to music, and spending time with my friends. I look forward to meeting all of you and seeing you guys debate, engage and have fun! I wish you guys luck and advise you to take this year’s PANAMUN as a learning experience and make the best out of it. I can’t wait to see you all!
