I studied intensive Mandarin in the summer of 2010 at the CET Academy in Beijing. I then lived and worked for two years in rural Anhui Province, China. During those two years, my day to day conversations with locals, neighbors and coworkers were all conducted in Chinese and I met with a private Mandarin tutor daily. During that time, I also spent a lot of time celebrating local festivals, playing Chinese games, and traveling China, so my knowledge of China extends into culture as well as language!
I competed in Speech and Debate on the State and National level during my high school career. I also served as Vice President of the Team. I ranked 6th in the nation for Lincoln-Douglas Debate and 3rd in the nation in Parliamentary Debate in 2008. I also ranked 11th in the state of California in Congressional Debate in 2007 and 2008. I also have experience competing in National and Foreign Extemp, Impromptu, Policy Debate, and Ted Turner Debate.
I also founded and coached an English only debate team while teaching high school in China, so I have a lot of experience teaching persuasive and public speaking to native and non-native English speakers!
