Hi all!

Put me on the email chain pls! juliaisabellhunter@gmail.com. And since my email is here, feel free to email me asking about debate or college or anything really after your round - debate was so key in my development into a real person in high school and that had so much to do with the people who judged me. I want to help and feed your love for debate as much as I can!!

Here's the real stuff:

Currently I'm a sophomore at the University of Michigan. I don't debate in college and I admittedly haven't been very involved in debate since the summer before my freshman year of college. I have coached both policy and LD debate, but very lightly. This topic I have judged at the Michigan tournament and the MLK tournament (in Union City).

I debated for four years in high school at St Vincent de Paul HS (SVDP HM and PH on pairings) in California, consistently cleared at tournaments and went to the TOC 3 out of my 4 years. Was mostly interested in critical debate - never read a plan, usually went for the K when I was neg. However, I also exclusively went for framework against K affs and really did my best to not have my K debates become a battle of who can say the biggest words. I have no moral stake in this game - I read arguments that I found to be fun and intuitive and did what I could to win. I went for death arguments a lot and I was (and still am) deeply interested in queer theory and gender literature. Take from that what you will regarding my levels of comfortability with certain arguments, but know that I will vote on anything regardless of my background.

I will evaluate a debate based on how you debate. I am not going to vote for a K just because it is a K. You have to do line by line. I'll say it again: you have to do line by line. At the same time, your arguments must be well explained and I have no problem with overviews that are meant to provide that deep explanation and organization of the debate. Line by line with no substance is worth almost nothing.
