For freshmen students at MSUBS, every academic year ends with a public speech contest in format of TED Talks. Students go through heats in their respective groups and the best compete in the finals at the end of the semester. This year, due to unexpected circumstances, the final round took place online. However, it did not stop the finalists from delivering powerful and thought-provoking messages.
The topic for this year was rather broad, We Can Make It Happen, and the speeches ranged in content from sustainability and inclusion to personal values and priorities.
This year winners are (in order of appearance during the contest):

All of the finalists demonstrated great command of English, creative thinking, and impressed the judges with public speaking skills. We thank all the finalists for very spectacular and inspiring performances and congratulate them on the job well done.
