I’m Headed Back to Nationals This Year

I’ll be heading to Alabama soon to compete in the National Speech & Debate tournament again this year. I am so excited! Here’s an article that ran in Pine Views┬álast year that I never posted. It gives you some additional information on the tournament. Wish me luck!


Pine View Speech & Debate Group Takes 2nd At States

I was part of the group that represented Pine View at the state speech and debate tournament. We did the piece Inside Out. I played Joy. I had an amazing time and couldn’t have asked for a better team. We put so much work and passion into our performance, it was bittersweet to take second place. We’ll be back next year!

And The Winner Is…

I recently attended my second speech and debate tournament in Palm Harbor. This time I was way less nervous; however, I was still shocked when they called my name for first place!

UPDATE: June 2016 – I finished my first year of speech and debate in humorous interpretation with two first-place wins and three second-place wins. And, I qualified to go to nationals in Salt Lake City, which was an amazing experience.

And The Award Goes To…

I attended my first speech and debate tournament (FGCCFL at King High School) on Saturday. My goal was to just get through my piece and not forget any of my lines. Well, you can imagine my surprise when they called my name for 2nd place! I was very proud of myself.
