UCLA freshman Tanesha Walker, 19, came back to McClymonds Wednesday to visit the debate team, which she led last year. On Tuesday, she spoke to the 10th graders about her experiences at UCLA and adjusting to diversity.
“I’m involved in community service, in building a stronger Black community on campus,” said Walker.
Walker has had to give up debate because the focus at UCLA is on parliamentary debate, not urban debate.
She plans to major in mathematics.
“Coming from McClymonds, you’re behind and you have to catch up,” she said.
