"The IPPF is a unique opportunity to develop the abilities to deeply analyze a real, impactful issue and express complex argumentation eloquently. With no debate experience prior to the IPPF, I also learned how to quickly adapt to the unfamiliar environments the IPPF exposed me to. As I've developed my leadership skills in the four years since my IPPF experience, I've found those three skills invaluable."
