Judging qualifications:
I competed in UIL Speech and Debate in high school. I competed in Extemporaneous speaking, prose, poetry, and CX, but my primary event was LD. Through these experiences, I have seen all sides of speech and debate and would love to come work or volunteer at tournaments throughout the year and help the competitors improve throughout the process. Beyond that, however, I am currently a student at Texas A&M pursuing a degree in political science with an emphasis on theory. I have an expansive knowledge base on different theories that will give me a unique judging perspective.
