A bit about Lallas

Lallas quit her job as a TOEFL teacher in Shanghai to come to Watson. Before that she worked for the government sector in the medical field for a while. She is also a voracious reader, backpacker, translator, interpreter, and enthusiastic debater. She went to all kinds of debating tournaments and workshops across Asia and volunteered to coach debate societies that are underfunded. Engaged with debaters from all over the world, she truly believes in diversity and the value of different perspectives.
