Winnie talks about her first debate experience in the USA

I didn’t know what to expect. All I could do was imagine a scene where I was blown away by a speaker and not being able to respond. I created one of the worst scenes so that if it actually happens, I’ d be like : yeah, I saw that coming”.
I was nervous and excited. It was my very first debate tournament in America and I had just arrived so I had too many emotions to digest at the same time.
Well, I guess after having my first round, I knew where I was standing. It was a normal debate, different format I may say, but it was the exact same English that I speak! which I could say was my consolation. Otherwise, everything else was the same and I must say that the first tournament was encouraging and it gave me a taste of what it is all about.
