I have been significantly involved in speech and debate throughout my high school career, predominantly in extemporaneous speaking. Since my sophomore year, I have been the team captain of extemp, helping younger students and novices get into the event and succeed.

The CrowdPrep Institute

In order to help give back to the speech and debate community, I co-founded the CrowdPrep Institute, a completely free Discord platform that helps to match students with free coaching and preparation. The CrowdPrep institute utilizes crowdsourcing for coaching expertise to generate resources for students to access. Students can discuss their events, work with others, attend lectures hosted by coaches, and participate in labs created by CrowdPrep staff. In addition, I am the Director of Speech, coordinating speech coaches, and I act as a coach, developing resources and using my time to help those on the server.

I am also a coach and leader of Extemp at SD Simplified, an organization creating free and accessible resources for anyone looking to learn Speech and Debate. I manage the Extemporaneous Speaking department, design lectures, activities, and quizzes, and hold open office hours to help new students one on one.
