Over these past few days, my younger brother and sister have been competing in a speech and debate tournament up in Orange County. Lizzie is a senior this year, and this was her last local tournament before she graduates. She and her debate partner Hannah, who have debated together for four years now, had a fantastic tournament. They were undefeated in preliminaries, with a 6-0 record, and continued on to win the entire tournament, placing first out of 120 teams.
What they did was incredibly difficult - even during all of my time in debate I never even came close to that. But their hard work and discipline has paid off. So proud!
