Baji is a junior in Yale College studying Economics and Ethnicity, Race, and Migration (ER&M). On campus he competes with the Yale Mock Trial Association, coaches with the Advanced Debate Institute, and conducts health economics research. In high school at Choate Rosemary Hall, he served as the co-captain of the school’s debate team and vice president of the Model UN team. This efforts led him to represent the USA at the World Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championship (WIDPSC) in Cape Town, South Africa and to the final stage of the National High School Ethics Bowl Tournament. He believes that debate education should expand far outside of the activity itself and prepare students to speak confidently and passionately on issues that matter to them.
