Name: Danielle Castillo

What did you miss the most about speech? 

The one thing I missed most about speech was the community. I think having that support group that encourages you to, not only speak your mind, but advocates on your behalf while being so open is one unique aspects of this activity that has attracted me for years.

Tell us about your major!! Why did you pick it? What do you plan to do in the future?

I am a Political Communication major. I have always carried an interest in political processes, and hope to incorporate that into my career when I graduate. I plan to work cooperatively on campaigns and with politicians as a speechwriter/communication adviser.

If  you could perform any script in the world, what would it be? 

If I could perform any script in the world it would probably be Marry Poppins because it is one of my favorite childhood movies and I think with a twist it could be so interesting and fun!

What has been your favorite thing to do with the team? 

My favorite thing to do with the team is warm ups before tournaments. Warm ups ramp us up with energy, but they are also one of the only times we are all together to see what we have been working so hard on. I think it is such a privilege to work with such a diverse and talented group of individuals and I just feel so much pride and push to be better— competitively and personally. It just serves as a good reminder on why we work so hard in this activity.

If you could win an award for anything, what would you want to win it for?

If I could win an award for anything it would be for my future research in my division.
