Today my sisters and I competed in the 2016 Blacks in Government Oratorical Competition. We spoke on the topic of Racial Injustice and everyone we competed against was soooo good!! I was the last one to go and my speech went by so fast I was skeptical about meeting the minimum time, but I did (barely). Despite this, I managed to place second…this would be my third time in a row. I was happy, but I was overcome with joy when my little sister, Patrice, placed first.
When she got up to get her award, she cried tears of joy. I’m not gonna lie, I did too because I know how hard she worked for that moment. Since I’m a senior, this was my last year competing, so I’m counting on my sisters to keep up the good work. Also, after the competition we were able to take a stroll through the museum and it’s pretty cool.
