Rachel Kusbel, 11th-grader at Longmont High School

Rachel Kusbel recently finished as the No. 1 oralist in the annual Moot Court competition for the Colorado Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project at the University of Colorado. This event allows students to compete against their peers from other Colorado high schools in oral argument rounds judged by local lawyers and judges.

What was the Moot Court competition like?

The competition was set up so we would participate in three different rounds with different judges. The most challenging part was making changes to my argument along the way. I was so used to practicing what I had created, it was hard and weird to add something the judges wanted to hear.

Anything you would change?

I wouldn't change anything because I had fun with my friends, I tried my hardest, and I had a competitive attitude the entire competition.

What did you learn from the experience?

I learned how to think quick on my feet because the judges would interrupt and ask questions we wouldn't expect. I had to think fast to compose a well thought-out answer.

What do you like about Longmont High?

I love how Longmont gives students opportunities outside of school, like the Moot Court competition, to compete in and ultimately learn life skills and learn more about ourselves.

What other activities do you participate in?

I participate in volleyball. I plan on joining drama this spring if possible and getting more involved by joining student council for my senior year.

Favorite class?

Honors government

Favorite movie?

"Marley and Me"

What's your dream job?

To be an engineer like my dad and uncles are, in my family.
