English Competition

During the Term 3 break, I attended the SMANSA Medan English Fair 2.0 Speech Competition hosted by SMAN 1 Medan. Within this competition I chose to construct a speech under the question of  “Is a college degree essential for getting jobs?”. I decided to base my speech on facing delusions within a structural society, under the social norm and general expectation of having to obtain a college degree in order to be able to get a good job.

I concluded that yes, for jobs such as being a medical specialist, dentist, IT expert, architecture, lawyer etc it has been proven that getting a college degree, expanding one’s knowledge on the designated field is very important and thus crucial and essential in going to college. On the other hand, not all jobs require a college degree. Professions such as social media influencer, a YouTuber, entertainer, etc does not necessarily require a college degree for one to enter that field of profession. Fortunately, I was elected as one of  the top 10 finalists and would like to sincerely thank all of my teachers and peers who supported me throughout my journey!
