Hello! My name is Monica Eslamian. I am a junior at University of California, San Diego. My majors are Communications and Political Science. I am a huge supporter of the Speech and Debate program and have been heavily involved for 5 years now. I coach and compete in over 7 different events. I run the program at UCSD and it has proven to be one of the most enjoyable challenges I have yet to face. I coach students at the old high school I went to as well as coaching the students on my team. Many of whom, had never competed in speech and debate prior to this year. I have received many awards during my time of competition and I am always working on improving my own skills. I speak 3 different languages and I love to read.
