JDC West is a journey that opens your eyes forever. It is an opportunity to push your education to the highest level and bring your knowledge into the challenges of today’s world. It is a community that brings you together with incredible people who overwhelm you with endless waves of compassion, of commitment, of hope. It is a push to discover yourself, to find your strengths, and showcase your talents. It is more than a competition, It is a place to be you. I am a lifetime debater who has been heavily involved in the debate community as a competitor, judge, coach, statistics director, and tournament consultant.
