Emily Cao, the Second Place of Original Oratory Novice at Stanford High School Speech and Debate Invitational 2021

“I have been learning public speaking for several years, but I have never really participated in any competitions. Thanks to my instructor Ms. Carol Carter, I have been encouraged sign up for the Stanford High School Speech and Debate Tournament.  From picking my topic I wanted to speak about, to performing the speech, I gained valuable experience and learned a lot from the other competitors. At first, the amount of words I had to memorize was pretty daunting, but after many hours of practice, guidance from Ms. Carter, and support from APASS team, I started to really enjoy delivering the speech from the heart. Overall, this competition was very insightful and motivates me to become an even better public speaker!”

The Stanford tournament was such an emotional rollercoaster and my adrenaline was shooting up and down! I would truly like to thank the teachers and APASS Team for helping me hand in hand and leading me to today! You guys are really HEROES HAHA!!”
