What is Debate???

Wednesday, April 28

Congrates!!! Everyone!!!!

I deeply want with all my gratitude say thank you and congratulations to my juniors whom went for both UIA and Help Debate.

I remember how hard it was for all of you to go through it, considering how intolerant the game was because well you all we're newbies and I could acknowledge the fact that this was for many of you, your first time entering such things.

I remember Aisyah's expression when she was personally given "best Speaker", how Ameerah would never loose hope, how Azizul could always give out a smile, how Raihan would always want to be better. Laila and her funny sarcasm, How unpredictable and egoistic Arif would be, or how Ulfah would always fight away, or even how Amira would give a perfect speech. And lastly how Syazwani would still come and support us even when she's sick. LOL

Thank you..... all of you. You made me young again. once upon a time i was the one whom would sit at the back and watch as my seniores debated, well now it's happening all again.

My Only wish is that you bear in mind that this isn't the end, debate must still continue in Maahad, feared and respected we are by the rest. never loose hope nor loose your will, because by the end of the day the only one who is stopping you from recieving that trophy............ is You.

HELP Debate & IIU Debate 2010

We are so gonna be incredible!!!

For the first time ever.... Syazwani will be LEADING her debate team to IIU and this will be her first time going seven rounds in a row! Her teammates are Airf Hakimi (Prime Minister), Amira (Opposition Leader), Ulfah (Deputy), and Wani as the whip. Good luck!!! IIU Debating Championship is on the 16th - 21st of April.

Meanwhile, on the 24th and 25th of April, there will be another debate, under HELP university. Almost RM 5000 is worth to be won and there are only 60 teams plus. This time, MAHDI will be lead by Raihan Afiqah with her teammates Laila Jamilah, Aisyah and Azizul.

I could feel it.... every time I wanna sleep, the adrenaline rush when you all will be debating.
It heartens me when you put a blank piece of paper next to you all and "assumed" that I was there and debating with you all like last time.
Remember this: I'm always there even when you can't see me.
