The Speech Contest pt.2

As promised in part 1 of this post, here is the speech my student gave.

Is he great or what?

Unfortunately, in order to move on to the Prefecture championship round, you have to be one of the top 5 of this group of 55 students. My student was number 6. Chyo Yabai!!! But he took it well.

I’d rather he were 20th than 6th. To be that close to something you’ve worked so hard for, to have the prize within your grasp and watch it handed to someone else… Sometimes it can have an adverse affect on the candidate. But, he rolled with it and I’m awfully proud of him

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
