Shelley Pacheco is a Political Science and Sociology double-major at Augsburg University, She stepped up to help coach the Spanish Debate League at Southwest High School on behalf of the Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University.

“One of my main takeaways from doing debate is about leadership. I was always the shy girl who didn’t really speak up, especially about social issues, but debate has really helped me to improve my public speaking skills and also to be able to stand up for myself in my community,” Shelley tells us.
