My heart is racing. My palms are sweating. As they call my name, I stand up.
My chair scrapes the ground while I step back, then I head towards the stage. So many eyes look back at me, follow me, waiting. Prove them wrong, they tell me, but I doubt whether I can. I know they are there to judge me, so I steel myself. I am prepared. The steps towards the podium are too few, and they are already running out. Arriving, their eyes still wonder, can I do it? I reshuffle my notes, and clear my throat, meet the judge’s eyes as I reach for my timer and press “start”. Their eyes blink, and I have begun.
This is a day in the life of a debater, something you can experience first hand on the 18-20th of March at KG Cup. It is a inter-school debate competition held at Kungsholmen, where teams from all over Sweden come together to practice rhetoric. Try-out for the teams on the 17th of February starting at 14.10, and maybe you will have a story like this of your own to tell. Come help us defend Kungsholmen!
P.S. you can find more information at the Facebook event or through our facebook group

LUF står för det Liberala Ungdomsförbundet. Vi är väldigt enkla, vi bestämmer inte åt dig, vi ser till så att du får bestämma så länge du inte skadar andra. Det är inte vår sak huruvida du anses vara märklig. Vi är kort sagt en av sveriges äldsta och största liberala organisationer.
