Lilia Brooker ’19 Represents Deerfield at the World Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championships

Sonja Krusic O'Donnell – April 18, 2018

Lilia participated in four distinct events at the competition last week in Cape Town: Debate, Impromptu Speaking, Persuasive and Interpretive Reading. Due to an unforeseen delayed arrival at the completion, Lilia became the first competitor in the competition’s history to perform six speeches, in three events, back-to-back. She had a strong performance overall, earning the respect and support of the 160 competitors from ten countries as part of the US Team’s overall success. ​
