Laura has a multinational personality and doesn’t believe in being tied down to country-specific stereotypes. She has graduated with multiple law degrees and is currently working within the legal field – facts she might mention once or twice. Apart from the legal and political spheres, she enjoys yoga, and running around making sure everything is on track. She started debating with a public speaking background, therefore is especially welcoming to persons wishing to try debating and adjudicating for the first time.
Since 2014, Laura has consecutively attended Heart of Europe. Over the years, she has tried most of the roles at the Tournament with being in the Chief Adjudicators’ Panel (CAP) and a Tabulation Officer as her favourites. Whilst both of the roles require different skills, they both require strict preparation and an all hands on deck attitude. This year, she is very pleased to be returning as the Chief Adjudicator!
Her thoughts on #HoEDT20: “I have an extremely diverse CAP for 2020 with a good balance between returning and new CAs. I see this as a solid testimony as to us being an inclusive family, and a place where one wants to come back! After so many editions, for me it’s not a question of ‘why’, it is a question of ‘when’ and ‘where’, that’s why I am thrilled to be invited back for my 7th year.”
A word of advice to the debaters of #HoEDT20: “Make sure you prepare for all the prepared motions in advance as we genuinely do want to give out points! For the impromptu motions, keep an eye out on the latest news as well as the social media for the Tournament. Should you have any specific questions, please come and talk to me at the trainings.”
