SPH Sentul City Student Won the 1st Place in a Storytelling Competition

Adrian Francis Irawan, a Grade 10 SPH Sentul City student, won the 1st place in a storytelling competition held by Bina Nusantara University on October 12-14, 2018. This competition was a part of eCOM 2018, an annual English competition by BINUS English Society, consisted of 7 different competitions: Storytelling, Debate, Spelling Bee, Story Writing, Speech, Newscasting, and Scrabble.

The Storytelling competition was comprised of 3 rounds, mixing both prepared and impromptu stories.

“The most challenging part of the competition was the 2nd round where in 15 minutes, I have to make up a story using the theme “Fear of the Unknown”. Since I am not so good in improvisation, it took a great deal of concentration and courage for me to present a story I have never practice before,” said Adrian.

The scoring criteria for storytelling included the flow and mastery of the story, fluency, grammar, pronunciation, duration, acting, intonation, audience engagement, and confidence. To achieve well in each of the criteria was challenging as well for Adrian.

Throughout the whole competition, Adrian also admitted that he was discouraged since most of the contestants are more experienced. But by believing that God already has a plan for him and doing his best, he successfully conquered those fears. Adrian also addressed the role of his coaches.

“I can only achieve this far because of the guidance from my coach, Alexia in Grade 12 and Ibu Stephanie. Their endless support and sacrifice led me to maximize my potential in storytelling. Lastly, I knew that it is only by God’s work that this is all made possible. And the prize that I receive through my winning is to be given to the people in need,” he added.

Such humility to acknowledge God in our achievement! We are grateful for this outstanding testimony of God’s work in our student’s lives.
