Judging qualifications:
During most of my high school career I participated in U.I.L poetry and informative speaking. In those years I gained lots of experience going to numerous invitational meets, and all three years of my participation I was always able to make it to at least the Regional round. I am a state qualifier in Poetry Interpretation, and believe my judging abilities could help young participants to succeed.
