|"My son, James, is lucky. I wish I had had this class when I was going to school. I am very shy very shy. If I had taken forensics, I think I would have become the doctor that I wanted to be .because it gives you confidence and self-esteem to proceed. These kids are invincible. They are so sure of themselves. They will go anywhere now and can do anything."||Debate
and forensics gives disadvantaged children a chance to succeed.
"My high school debate department included several Hispanic and Asian students from families with working class backgrounds. One of my partners came from a family of ten from Mexico. Two family members, due to state awards in debate and forensics, received full-paid scholarships to Stanford and Harvard."

When I go to the tournaments, I do look to see in the other schools how many Latinos are in this. It's a good feeling to see them. Cause you think "All right! They're going to go forth go on to college."|
