My debate as my starting point
I found my close friends in Junior High School, who introduced me with a thing called “dream”. We made dreams together, one of them was that we want to study aboard, succeed in life, and together we will build an Indonesian restaurant in USA. In my 1st grade of vocational high school, I applied for student exchange from AFS, but I failed. I applied again from Nacel Open Door organization and this time I was selected as Indonesian delegation for 1 year student exchange in USA but I couldn’t take it due to some financial problem. My entire journey started since I joined English Debate Club. Almost every day I come home late because of the routine training after school. I joined debate competitions from regional until national level for 2 periods. I joined national level in 2010, but I didn’t in 2011. I didn’t lose my passion because of that and pay it by became the Jabodetabek Best Speaker in SMAN 1 Depok. To be a different student, I have to make more efforts in order to get bigger results than the others. With this club, I get can go to many places, know things about governance, politic, economic, world, war, and stuff. And now, I become the coach for my juniors. I learn that I have to keep trying my best, hoping high, and expecting less, and the best achievement is the one that has gone through the hardest struggle. And I’m thankful for being in this club, because my debate life is my starting point to my dreams.
