The students of 373K had these thoughts to share about being on the 2015-2016 debate team:
My name is Joshua and I’m part of the debate team. How I feel about the debate is that it was hard and you need to compete against other schools.”
Hi my name is Tauheedah and I feel proud because we tried our best and we did a lot of work. What I like being in debate because I get to argue.”
I am part of the Brooklyn transition center debate team. My name is Nery I thought being in the debate team was awesome because of it was a good experience. I liked arguing. I liked working as a team.”
These types of things don’t come and go in life. Being a debate member is something you have to work hard to compete and be a part of. Being a part of the Transformers requires a lot of skill and talent. This type of job takes serious work, but it doesn’t stop you to not have fun. Knowing the fact that I helped the 373k debate earning their FIRST win. It something to be very proud of. Yes, We may lose pretty much all our battles. But we still learn something. We still gained better skills. Talking in front of the camera with a live audience is not easy at all. And in my opinion, the Transformers made it look easy. Winning is not everything, and it doesn’t have to be.”
I was sad for the first competition because we lost and I got really angry….”
Thank you to teachers Patricia Kwiecinski and Elizabeth Skovera for leading their Transformers team.
