Hi I'm Aleks and I'm a sixth form student at Reading School.
I've qualified to represent the UK at the World Championships in Debating and Public Speaking this Easter in Toronto.
This is a great opportunity, however it comes with substantial costs of a minimum £2030
"The Championship is an innovative five day event which requires students to interact and collaborate with like minded peers from diverse and different schools, cultural backgrounds and countries. Each participant must compete in four different events: Debate, Impromptu Speaking, Persuasive or After Dinner Speaking and Interpretive Reading."
This is a big event and big opportunity for me to go to, and I just need to finance my way to get there. It's a great life experience that I want to make the most of.
