SPH Sentul City Student Won the 1st Place in Asian English Olympics Speech Competition

The Asian English Olympics is a prestigious event hosted by one of BINUS University’s student activity units, the BINUS English Club (BNEC). BNEC annually organizes the Asian English Olympics, involving more than 500 students from various countries across Asia. This year’s Asian English Olympics theme was “Discover Your Extraordinary”, designed to encourage Asian youths to be brave in stepping out of their comfort zones and to discover their own meaning of “extraordinary” within their lives.

Held on February 8-12, 2018, the Olympics challenged its participants in several competitive fields: Debate, Speech, Storytelling, News-casting, Spelling Bee, Scrabble, Short Story Writing, and Radio Drama.

SPH Sentul City English Club team participated in this Olympics and one of the students, Sherri Makhijani, successfully achieved the 1st place in speech competition. Another student, Alexia Pane, was also successful in advancing to the speech competition Octofinals. On the other hand, there were also three other students (Dhira Vidhea, Rebecca Emmanuella Ranggabua and Aruna Fransisca Tung) who advanced to the semifinals of News-casting competition of Asian English Olympics 2018.

As an active participant in the SPH Sentul City English Club, Sherri describes how she has developed her public speaking skills and improved herself as a person.

“I’ve learned that instead of focusing solely on the prize, it is better to focus on improving oneself. Joining the English Club didn’t just teach me public speaking skills, but also taught me how to become a better and stronger person, which have led to my success in the Asian English Olympics,” she says.

She also met many new people from other countries at the competition, and she learned how to take risks.

“When you put yourself out into the world and take risks, I’ve learned that what you gain from it is bountiful. I am grateful to my school and my English Club for always encouraging me to take those risks, and hope that students from SPH Sentul City continue to do so,” she added.
