Isobel Christie competed in the 2019 National Council of Women speech competition and was awarded second place. She shares a few comments on her experience.
The National Council for Women Speech Competition was a very rewarding experience. Everyone there was so supportive and it was lovely to see all the different speeches from the girls and their views on the world. I would recommend the event to any feminists from Western Springs who want to meet and hear other like-minded people share their ideas. Believe me, it is actually really, really fun. I was lucky enough to receive second place at the event, along with $300 and I will most probably compete again in 2020. I hope to see more people step up and enter this fun, fulfilling competition next year.
