FAVORITE MEMORY FROM HIGH SCHOOL
Drinking boba tea with my debate coach, Mrs. Campbell, at Litchi Snow Ice in Florida at the end of the National Debate Championship. It had been a long few days, and I was at last able to just relax, talk and enjoy the boba.
THE TEACHER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE
Mrs. Campbell, my debate coach, AP United States history teacher and constant mentor, has fundamentally changed my view of myself and of my abilities. In and out of the classroom, she sets an example in work ethic, empathy and understanding that I am always seeking to emulate.
