December 12, 2012. One of the activities sponsored by the student council during the annual college week is a debate tournament among interested groups in school. Perhaps out of whim, Lawrence decided to form a group, which included me and Henesty. We were an odd bunch, none of us debaters, but certainly not incapable of delivering good arguments. We made up a team name, awkwardly combining our first names into a silly phrase–“It’s Law, Hence–Victory!” Haha!
With not much expectations in our minds, we gave it a shot.
We spent the past few days researching and rehearsing our speeches, and today we went through the elimination rounds. We were matched against younger law students, but were all experienced debaters. All worthwhile opponents, I might say.
Behold, despite the novelty of our attempt, we won! Onto the semifinals!
