Bouncing a leather ball to success

When I was about 5 years old I wanted to be President of Africa and Europe, or Afrope. I was fully aware that Europe and Africa were not only two separate continents but also continents made up of very many countries but that was an insignificant detail, I had a plan! And I had announced to all of my family how I would unite Africa and proceed to threaten Europe with war unless they joined my federation. It’s fair to say I am a little bit ambitious.

I was 5 then and I have spent the past 11 years trying to figure out who I am since I can’t be the president of two continents. I have tried to rap; dance; play basketball, soccer, baseball, tennis, volleyball and I have come to the realization that I am meant for greater things than kicking pieces of inflated leather *sigh of relief* but still until September 2013 I knew I was awesome but I did not know at what.

BryanManzi_DCFinally I joined the debate club and I learnt that I can talk or speak or whichever… now I am back to being ambitious. My team and I have won a bunch of tournaments and this year we have the chance to go to the largest tournament in the world and WIN.

It is statistically unlikely that I become president of Afrope, but my team can win the WSDC if we get there and prepare (I can’t rap but I can rhyme).

Let’s make history!
