Miss. Yetunde Ojebola Afeyodion, an SS2 student of The Vale College, has won the Splash FM/ RevolutionPlus Oratory Contest. The annual Oratorical contest, which is fast becoming Nigeria’s biggest platform for youth interactions and constructive argument, held on Monday, 27th May at Mauve 21 Events Centre in celebration of the Children’s Day. Here is what Yetunde has to say:
“It was an exciting event that actually opened my eyes to world issues I didn’t know much about. At the preliminaries, I was confident that I would make it to the finals because I had done all the research and I had understood the concepts on a personal level. Making it to the finals was enough for me because I knew my school would be proud of me. But something urged me to reach higher. And I did. I owe my victory to the amazing support I had from The Vale College. Right from the beginning, the whole school encouraged me in all ways possible. The teachers were there to explain the concepts surrounding the topics, they also coached me every day and were understanding enough to explain the topics being taught in classes I had to miss to prepare for this competition. The students were also supportive, helping me out with chores I couldn’t do in the hostel and keeping me updated with my classwork and assignments. The support and commitment of The Vale family has made me the star I am.”
Congratulations, Yetunde. We are very proud of you. KEEP SHINING!
