Angels shine at this year's Senior Public Speaking Competition. Congratulations to Joyce Chen '21, who made three Finals (placing first in Finals for Interpretive Reading) and finished second overall and to Natalie Viegas '22, who made two Finals (placing third in Finals for Impromptu Speaking) and scored fifth overall. Both Joyce and Natalie qualified for the Senior Public Speaking National Championships to be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, this December.
In addition, the LFA team of Joyce and Natalie recently competed in Boston, in the 2019 International Independent Schools Public Speaking Championships which featured 150 students from across the globe. Joyce made it all the way to Finals for Impromptu and both Natalie and Joyce finished in the top 20%.
LFA students not only got to meet and compete with the top public speakers from countless countries including Peru, England, Lithuania, South Africa and Jamaica to name just a few, but also had time to explore Boston which included meeting the statue of John Harvard, the third most photographed statue in the US.
