“After three years of being a part of the Debate Club I no longer take things for granted. I have begun to discuss many more issues with my friends because debating has developed my critical thinking. I also learned how to present my ideas and my thoughts in an appropriate manner so that people can understand me. This has improved my interpersonal skills. I was a shy girl who never felt at ease in speaking in front of other people, but now I have grown more sure of myself and am a person who can discuss, debate and argue her point.
Debating has taught me to be an objective person. Through debate you learn to listen to those who think differently and to understand their points of view and this helps to get a clearer idea of the general situation.”Dana Ewaiwi
