Our People

Mary Beth-Hi everyone!  My name is Mary Beth. It’s my second year here at Mason, but this will be my 6th year in debate. I have worked extensively on research projects and am in the processed of being published in a journal. My strengths include research and preparing presentations such as PowerPoints. I am excited to get to work with you all! 

Ben Biggs-I'm Ben Biggs. I have been a part of our school's debate team since coming to Mason as an out of state student in 2016. I have previously taken communication courses here at Mason. My strongest aspects for communication would be helping with research and argumentative refinement, so if you need help in these areas be sure to schedule an appointment!

After graduating with a B.A in Communication, Briana moved back to the Fairfax area to work in Arlington, VA at an Investment Services firm.

Emily-Hi everyone! I'm in my fourth year here at Mason. I'm a business major and took COMM101 (interpersonal communication) for the Mason Core. I'm on the debate team, so I've had ample time to hone skills related to clear, efficient communication, as well as how to tackle the fear of speaking in front of other people.

Habiba-My name is Habiba and I am a senior studying government and international politics. I am on the Policy Debate team so I'm familiar with any nervousness that comes from communicating with others. I'm also pretty good at researching. Furthermore, I am natively fluent in Arabic as I was born and raised in Egypt. I'm very excited to work with Comm students and to help out any way I can.

Jacob-Hey Everyone, my name is Jacob I am currently a junior and a double major in government and conflict analysis here at Mason. I currently compete for the University Speech team and have been doing public speaking competitions for the last 8 years. I would love a chance to help you outline your speech or work to improve your presentation skills. Can’t wait to see everyone!

Tom-I'm Tom, and I love Communication. In addition to working at the Comm Center, I compete on the GMU Forensics Team in which I write and give speeches nationally. If you need help with your fear of public speaking, delivery of a speech, or literally anything to do with Communication, feel free to schedule a session with me!
