Laztly, the A-core of this tournament:
– Fhadilah (USU) as the Chief Adjudicator
A small town girl trapped in the world of debating. She has been constantly trying to free herself from the addiction, yet the more she resists the more she loved debating. Today, debating does not only consume some portion of her life. She has dedicated herself to be the Chief Adjudicator of the first Medan Pro Am Debate Open, to ensure the debating community remain sustained. Equipped with her leadership and also remarkable adjudicating skill, she is the best candidate we ever had.

– Agus (UMN)
Also known as the ghost of UMN CoDe. He is the guy behind the progressive development of UMN CoDe. Having the traits of hardworking and humble, this debater remain eager to keep on improving himself. Though he has missed his spotlight in debating, he decided to utilize the negative emotion into will power, which is used in self-actualizing himself through this competition. By showing his merit in debate, he hopes he will ever find peace in debating.

– Satya (MDF)
A debate enthusiast that is joyfully infected with debate virus. Today, he is attempting to release a groundbreaking debate epidemic to his local community. Being equipped with his little superior knowledge, it is within his power to infect common people with debate virus. FYI, the intended-to-be-released virus is certified with national experiences.
