What are you looking forward to the most at this year’s contest?
I am looking forward to sharing the significant, momentous story of the women’s suffrage movement in Texas with the audience at this year’s competition.
How has the Communication Studies department prepared you for this contest?
The Communication Studies department at TCU is phenomenal and the department has provided me with the necessary tools to craft excellent speeches, as well as the confidence to successfully deliver those speeches.
Any challenges you may have faced in preparation or piece of advice for others thinking of competing?
For students who are interested in competing in this oratorical competition, I highly suggest they manage their time wisely. Concurrently writing and memorizing a speech and completing schoolwork, along with other extracurricular activities, can be daunting. However, as long as they allocate the proper amount of time to prepare their speeches, they will do very well and enjoy the process.
