1st Place of The World Scholar’s Cup 2017

“Sometimes, the very best things in life happen when we least expect them to.”

We were super intrigued by the fact that we got a chance to join this incredible first regional round of the WSC 2017 in Ciputra last week. (13-14/05/17). It was an overall non-stop heartwrenching journey for us, remembering that this was our first time in participating. We first got there knowing that we, who were only provided a maximum of 2 weeks time to prepare, were up against students who in reality appeared as if they were actually born to do this. To say that we were dreadfully nervous is a complete understatement, knowing that there was no turning back then.

The events were, as expected, prestigious to its very core. Almost everyone we see had these game faces on, and we were standing there being like, “Eeeep, please don’t eat us alive.” I gotta be honest, though. The tension was real. Especially when you were the only three remaining representatives in your school who was forced to “pwaa” (sound of an Alpaca) in a room filled with people whom you were not exactly familiar with.

But all in all, it was a sheer blessing for us, to have experienced such an event like this held upon our lovely city of Surabaya. Especially knowing that we managed to bring home a 1st place trophy in the Senior Division’s Debate Team category. Now that, was uncalled for. We felt like legit lollipops (a term they made for the losing team) back then after each debate match against the opposition team(s), but surprisingly ended up winning all three of them in the end.

Not to mention, us acquiring a number 6 champion team candidate who is practically qualified to enter the global rounds, in either Hanoi, Athens, or Cape Town, was another breathtaking blessing coming from the Almighty God Himself.

Words cannot simply describe how grateful I am, to have become part of a such an amazing team. Thank you as well to Mam Sioe Ie, Mr Khris, Mr Lee, and Mam Ella for your unconditional love and support. My family and best friends, who are always ready to back us up.

And of course, the one and only Jesus Christ. For You are the one who made all this possible, who is the eternal light in our darkness, and our very best friend.

This one’s for YOU. 🙂
