What Students Say

  • When I first joined the debate team I didn’t know what I was doing. With some hard work coached by Ms. Russell I learned how to show emotion, how to articulate, and how to write my own speeches. I’m here to tell you that regardless of how you’re feeling Ms. Russell can change it. Give It A Try!

  • When I first joined the debate team, I was very inexperienced and shy. But as I grew and experienced debate with Ms. Russell, I began to understand the importance of my voice. Because of the debate team, I am now a better public speaker and hope to become a lawyer. I will never forget my experience with the program and will cherish it for the rest of my life.

  • The project has helped me be an all round affluent, confident person , which was always in me , just needed a little push.

  • This program has taught me that I was born to be a leader, it’s ok to have a strong sense of self, and to be bold and courageous into who God has called me to be. I love this program, as well as all of our speakers.

  • My most enjoyable moment of the project was getting to meet and work with young and bright individuals and sharing my thoughts and views on societal changes and issues.

  • have followed your program for several months and I really love what you and your instructors are doing with the kids.
