He learned lots about politics for debate, attended a summer leadership seminar at Notre Dame to be a better debate captain, and coached public speaking for elementary and middle school students during the school year. He took the knowledge of public policy he gained from debate, along with his leadership skills from the seminar and coaching younger students, and created a Super PAC to engage more students on policy issues. He set out a core list of projects, assigned teammates to work on them, then organized group calling and mailing of legislators to make youth voices heard. This gained notice and was discussed in the news.
Faizan was accepted to Stanford.
