“Overwhelming support of LCC Community”

The ESU National Public Speaking Competition hosted by LCC provided me with an incredible opportunity to travel, represent my country, meet unbelievably talented people from across the globe, and improve my oratory skills. My journey to the grand final of the ESU International Public Speaking Competition in London was a wonderful experience, and I will forever treasure the memories, the friendships, and the invaluable advice. The overwhelming support of LCC’s community and the hospitality of the English-Speaking Union amazed me, I can only hope to contribute to these communities in the future, continuing the lovely partnership that started at LCC!
