Feedback of the Semi-Finalist of the NPSC 2019

Category: Информация, Information

You fail when you stop trying

  On February the second, America House in Kyiv kindly welcomed the semi-finalists of the National Public Speaking Competition organized by the English-Speaking Union Ukraine. That was an amazing possibility to make our thoughts heard, exchange ideas, meet soulmates and gain much experience.

Needless to say, that event consisted of two stages. First, 14 potential and talented semi-finalists from all over the country shared their prepared speeches on the topic ‘Nature is a common language’ and answered the provocative questions from the audience, judges and the Question team. Each speaker put all the experience and potential in the speech. To tell the truth, I was amazed by their talent, ideas that were shared to make this world better. The second stage was the final: 5 participants were chosen to present impromptu speeches. All the finalists did a great job and did their best.

 The judges finally announced Yelyzaveta Kompaniiets as the winner of NPSC 2019 and as the audience choice. And Oleksii Chaikovskyi became the runner-up of the competition.

    Now I’d like to share my motivation that drove me while being in the center of attention.

Public action isn’t an easy thing, right? Some people wish to avoid any of such actions, but not me and other competitors of the National Public Speaking Competition. 

I remember my first time standing out there in front of the full public. My palms were sweating; my thoughts were confused but my mom smiled proudly. That made me believe that was the time to share my ideas. However, it’s the second chance to compete, my excitement was strong. Now I believe everyone can do that. Are you afraid of speaking publicly? Do it. Are you not sure the audience shares your ideas? Do it. Are you afraid of being ashamed? Anyway do it and do it twice or till you win. That’s my motto.

    Every speaker showed its own world of imagination and arguments. We did it provocatively, funny and presented outstanding performances. Some believe that the winner can be the only one, but I do not agree. Everyone is the winner because we won our greatest fears. After the performance we gained much experience as well as friends. 

I was so lucky to have a chance to be in America house and enjoy this special cozy atmosphere. I want to say thanks to all who organize this amazing possibility for young generation. Everyone who was the part of this event, thank you, because you made our thoughts and ideas heard.

   If you hesitate about doing anything, don’t think at all. You must act. That’s the point of our confidence and achieving any success. Being a part of NPSC made me stronger, more confident and I feel that after such exciting event I can perform in front of the whole world.
