My name is Khush Parikh and I am a junior at Montville Township Highschool. I have been doing debate for three years, and have placed in multiple tournaments and in multiple categories. More specifically, I have won the State Tournament for Varsity Parliamentary Debate, am the New Jersey State Qualifier in Big Questions Debate to the National Speech and Debate League Tournament, and was the 1st Seed and Semi-Finalist in the JV Lincoln Douglas 2021 State Tournament. The various debate forms that I enjoy are Public Forum, Lincoln-Douglas, and Parliamentary Debate. Debate has improved my skills in public speaking and provided me with a community in which I can truly express myself.
