A little more about the debaters:
Miranda, is a grade 12 student. She comes from a single parent household where the cost of an active debate career has always been a challenge. Given this, Miranda works part-time to afford her passion for debate. She has been an active member of her school's debate team for 5 years and has participated in many national events, even becoming a North American Champion at the 2017 Women and Gender Minorities International University Debate Championships where she, an 11th-grade student, competed against university students from across North America and won. Miranda has been coaching younger students at her school in debate and speech for a few years and is currently the President of Burnaby Mountain's Debate club.
Carolyn, is a grade 11 student who has been in debate for 3 years. Being an overachiever, Carolyn has a ton of work on her plate. She is a passionate student taking numerous advanced courses above her grade level, regardless of her academic workload Carolyn has managed to dedicate extensive time for debate and has been an absolutely invaluable partner. Although her choice to debate with a partner above her grade and experience level meant that she would be facing disproportionally skilled competition, she has never let that get in her way and has always managed to absolutely exceed all expectations, most recently placing 3rd as an individual speaker in Canada at the National Qualifier for this event. She has also been an active facilitator of Burnaby Mountain’s debate club and is preparing to take over as President in her grade 12 year.
