By Margot Rowe

Avesita Helmandi, a Moorpark Colleges student, is driven by her passion to be a lawyer and a voice for the voiceless. She dedicates her time to the Moorpark College Forensics Team which spends each year competing in many speech and debate tournaments.

This passion has led her to victory as a California state champion and a National winning speaker in her first year on the Forensics Team.

Along with her dedication to the speech and debate team, Avesita is part of the Muslim Student Association where her passion for activism comes alive in planning protests, or educational lectures and events.

She plans to continue her activism and love of speech and debate into the next year and share her messages to improve the world.
