I’ve learned that you can be at the top of your field, whether that be science, engineering, or law, but if you cannot communicate that knowledge, if you cannot share that expertise, it doesn’t matter. Speech and debate is the most transformative experience you can offer your students, not only academically but in life as well. It is the reason I got into my dream school and it’s the reason I feel like I can do anything I set my mind to.
