Hello! My name is Sanjh Mahatme and I am a rising freshman at the Georgia Institute of Technology where I will be majoring in industrial engineering. I have been debating Public Forum ever since 4th grade and view it as a monumental experience in my growth as a person and am excited to be a part of that journey for other students. I am an Academic All American and have qualified to the TOC twice. Some of my debate accomplishments include being a semifinalist at the Grapevine Classic National Tournament, 2x GFCA State Champion, and both qualified and reached late elimination rounds at NSDA Nationals. As Public Forum captain of my school, I coached many novices, a few of which have grown to win state tournaments. I hope to help many of you grow your skills here at NSD and also foster a positive environment where we can learn and have fun!
