Jakarta Speech Competition

This January, I represented my school in The Jakarta Speech Competition. The topic of the competition was anything related to “The Z Generation.” For this competition, I decided to write a speech called “The Strive” which aimed to motivate today’s youth to act upon their ideas and turn them into a reality while maintaining a socially responsible attitude.

The experience was extremely enlightening as I got to hear everyone’s ideas and grow as a public speaker.
