Kassim competes in Speech and Debate and has had great success. He has passed the preliminary rounds in tournaments at Harvard, Emory University, George Mason University and the University of Florida. He has also made it to qualifying rounds in Tournament of Champions and the Catholic Forensics League National Championship.
