♦️How did you get into Public Speaking?
I got into public speaking through a program that my school had and we would rehearse and practice after school.
♦️How did you prepare?
I prepared by watching public speaking movies and by researching different techniques that could help my performance.
♦️How did you go about researching your material?
Me and my teammates would gather after school and research information and statistics that related to our topic; we would also read news columns and articles about our topic.
♦️What did you learn from the whole process?
From the whole process I learnt if you put your mind to something and really focus you can achieve anything; I also learnt that confidence is key.
♦️Any message to young people your age?
Remember to always be confident; stay true to yourself and you’ll be able to achieve anything you put your mind to.
♦️How did you feel when you lost in the final?
When we lost I felt disappointed but grateful and proud that i was able to reach that point in the competition especially because it was my first time.
