My time as a debater in high school set me on a path to work in public policy, politics, and education for more than 30 years…the skills, connections, and confidence I developed in debate made my success possible. When the chance came to spread debate to the many young people in need, I jumped at the opportunity, having been inspired by the many years of success of Urban Debate Leagues at bettering the lives of thousands of students nationwide.
