Azhar Hussain, Senior 

Southlake Carroll Debate Team

As the incoming Southlake Carroll Debate Team co-captain, Azhar has an outstanding reputation. As freshman, he became the Senate Congressional Debate state champion and proceeded to win the Congressional Debate Tournament at the University of Texas – Austin and the Foreign Extemporaneous Speaking Tournament at UNT. On the national circuit, Azhar has attended the finals at the Harvard Congressional Debate tournament twice, placing among the top 16 out of more than 500 participants across the country. He also took home second place in the State in Foreign Extemporaneous Speaking tournament.

ABOUT AZHAR: Known for working with his peers and pushing the boundaries of his intellect, Azhar’s favorite pastime is expanding his knowledge. Keeping in line with his love of Congressional Debate, his favorite show is the Netflix’s original series “House of Cards.” The interlinking of politics while working in the real world, as well as the drama, makes learning about the government more accessible for Azhar. He is also a member of the Carroll Medical Academy.

FAVORITE CLASS: AP World History. “We often look at history as a mundane catalog of dates and events, but the truth is, history is so much more. It is the story of mankind told from the beginning of time, filled with action, drama, romance, and sadness, all weaving a story of incomparable depth. If you want to learn about yourself, learn about the culmination of events that define you just as much as you define yourself.”

Debate teammate Nyle Hussain says: “With a powerful voice that commands an audience and a confidence that enthralls his listeners, Azhar has unsurprisingly joined the ranks of the top high school debaters in the country. He embodies the core essence of a Congressional Debater.”
