“日常生活中，我享受独处做自己喜欢的事儿。然而， 我发现当需要在大家面前表达自己时，这种“小癖好”会成为障碍。通过这次演讲比赛，我克服了我的“恐惧”， 变得更自信。一方面，这次比赛提升了我的英语组织能力，让我对英语学习更有信心。整个修改演讲稿的过程中，我意识到用有力论据论证观点的重要性；七次修改演讲稿的过程更是印证了用心付出就有收货。另一方面，通过这次参赛，我深知公共演讲技能的重要性：肢体语言让我的演讲更有震撼力，富有感情的语调能传递正能量。
大家好，我是王子熙（Jessy），我很荣幸和开心获得此次“未来领袖”英语演讲比赛一等奖。这一切都离不开我的指导老师Mr Zhou (Louis)，他兢兢业业帮助我修改演讲稿，提出了很多宝贵的意见，我从中学到了很多关于公共演讲的新知识。比如：公共演讲的开头段和结尾段的写法和作用，公共演讲的抑扬顿挫应该如何把握，非语言交流因素在公共演讲中的作用，如肢体语言（body language）和眼神交流（eye contact）等。通过这一连串的比赛，在老师、父母和同学鼓励下，让我变得越来越有自信，我也逐渐克服了舞台恐惧症（stage fright）。我也要感谢学校提供给与我们学生锻炼的平台，帮助我们实现自我成长。困难总是不可避免的，但我们要学会突破，跳出舒适圈，勇于挑战自我。同时我也希望下次有更多的人参与到我们当中。
This is Devint from 10A. I hope you can find some resonance in my speech. Though with a lot of heart and energy to modify the script back and forth, I know it might not be perfect, but I'm satisfied with my final speech. I would also like to thank the school for giving me this valuable experience to improve my English skill level. Thank you for all the guidance I have received from Miss Jade Chen and Mr Ran!, I could not have done it without any of you who supported me through the contest, thank you!
Hello everyone, I am Cristy from G10A. I am very happy to have won the second prize in this speech contest. I am very grateful to the teachers and the audience judges for their recognition. In addition, I especially want to thank my instructor Jade. Because when I was preparing for this competition, I didn't have much time. When I received the notice that I entered the semi-finals, my spare time was almost fully occupied, so I struggled for a long time between guitting and not quitting, and finally decided not to give up this opportunity. Having made the decision, my teacher and me communicated many times on manuscript revision. Finally, I had the satisfactory draft. Still, I spent three hours recording the five-minute video for thirty-seven times to finally make it. Despite the twists and turns in the process, I felt grateful that I didn’t give up. The English Speech Contest has facilitated my growth and let me realize the value of persistence.
