Abby debated for six years at Lake Highland in Orlando, FL. She accumulated two bids to the TOC and had 15+ bid rounds. Her top achievements were championing the NSDA Season Opener, top speaker and third place at the Florida State Tournament, and semifinals of the Florida Blue Key. When she debated, she enjoyed reading a variety of philosophical and critical theory arguments, some of her favorites were semiocapitalism, settler colonialism, Hegel, and feminist theory. Additionally, in high school, she was the president of W.in Debate and a PepTalk board member. Abby taught at NSD Flagship last summer and has coached and judged throughout the past year. She is excited to be back in person at NSD.
