Speaking with Confidence

Samantha Nava
Most people don’t want to even try speech and debate because they are scared of the public speaking aspect. That eventually goes away, and you’re left with overall better communicating skills and confidence.”
Samantha Nava
San Jac debate team member, and silver medalist Phi Rho Pi National Forensic Organization National Tournament
When Samantha Nava entered the world of debate, she was terrified to speak in front of others. She performed her first debates with a “fake it ‘till you make it” attitude. But through hard work, practice, and the mentorship of others, she found her voice and confidence.
