It’s tough to be a debater. It comes more natural to some but no one ever said it was easy. If you’re nervous, you should be. But your first tournament will likely get all the jitters out and you’ll start to realize that debate is way cooler than you thought.
First of all you get to be in a club with some of the smartest people in school, child prodigies, future leaders, and some odd balls sure. But talk about surrounding yourself with powerful influence. Just by reading this today, you’re off to a great start in life.
Debate is a community full of knowledge, passion, and influence. We gain knowledge of world events not taught about in the classroom and learn skills that give us an edge in everything else we do in life. Our passion is what drives us to care for one another and influence people to help make this world a better place.
I urge you to use your skills wisely and take this opportunity seriously for you will never have it again. After you register you can find video courses, material content, and more resources that will guide you in the right direction. You can choose to be an average debater or you can choose to be something exceptional.
