I am a sophomore from San Jose, CA. I want to focus on increasing access for girls and minorities to debate clubs. To do this, I would like to work with top debate coaches in my area to host free tournaments and increase exposure to debate. In addition, I hope to create a mentorship program in which established debate schools teach local students and allow them to compete at tournaments with the school team. My ultimate goal, however, is to stop sexism and racism in the debate space through equal representation.
