Oratorical contest

When I first registered for the contest i managed to get a quick glance of the schools participating. I was in awe. All the schools that are parcipating were all the top schools RI, ACSI and Methodist girls school too. Each and everyone of them were at least sec 2 and above, uwas definitely the youngest one there. I was against all odds. When i did my first speech, I was very confident because the topic was easy , I came up with great examples and I injected loads of humor and I was easily the funniest speaker in the room. However, my second speech was not as good as the topic was very hard but I tried to male the most out of it. With my total score , I could not advance to the next round and I was quite disappointed. I stayed on and watched my friends do the semi finals and I understood why I did not get in. They were speaking with such passion, such gusto. It was a truly humbling experience , I stayed on until the competition was over and supported the friends I made there and I learnt alot from the finalists. Even though I was disappointed for not getting the award but I made alot of good friends, it was quite fun. As the terminator said ,"I'll be back.".
