12 Jan Our Student at the Pan African Universities Debating Championships
It is every debater’s dream to compete at international tournaments but not many actually make it due to financial constraints. I am so glad because that unfortunate circumstance did not prevent me from participating in the 11th installment of the Pan African Universities Debating Championships which was hosted by the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania from 5-12 December 2018.
PAUDC 2018 was a series of adrenaline pumped speeches! I believe that this experience has expanded my pool of knowledge and it has introduced me to other influential young Africans. The level of ambition and hard work in these Africans was contagious. I am extremely proud of myself for reaching the quarter-final stage of the debating competition and also for making it to the 3rd round of the public speaking contest which was hosted by Afro-Speak in collaboration with TCRO. I’m eternally grateful to the Tomorrow Trust for supporting me in almost everything I do!– Written by: Minkateko Majoko
