Last year, my school had it’s annual speech competition. How it worked was everyone in the whole junior division wrote and presented a speech, and then one person from each class would be selected and would compete with all of the other representatives. I did my speech on some of the issues that girls face around the world and I was picked from my class to be the representative. On the day of the competition I was very nervous, but I still spoke passionately about the unfortunate lives of other girls around the world. I was thrilled when I won the competition!
Soon after the competition I got an email from the people at because I am a girl saying that they wanted me to be on their blog. Of course I said yes! After I worked on the questions they sent me, they put it on the blog along with a video of me presenting my speech.
Here is the video of me presenting my speech.
