Our volunteer shout out this week goes to Anuj Gupta who has an incredible passion for debate and volunteered at both the Harlem and Manhattan Summer Debate Institutes!
"I will be attending Columbia University this fall. I've debated Lincoln Douglas for 4 years at Roslyn High School. I was captain of the team for two years, where I built our national circuit debate program from scratch. I've made PowerPoints, ran drills, shown students how to effectively research, and given students the tools with which to build cohesive arguments and strategies. I've had students go far at several prestigious tournaments (Yale, Harvard, New York State Championships) and have had a lot of positive feedback from the community. I've competed at several tournaments on the national circuit and have broken twice at the NYSFL State Championship tournament. I also qualified to the NCFL national tournament my senior year. Aside from debate, I love music, reading, and playing basketball." - Anuj Gupta
