On Saturday, 27 February, Sandra Miller participated in the Lion's Youth of the Year program. Each year, the schools in Toowoomba affiliated with this event enter a student that they believe have the necessary abilities in public speaking and embodies the qualities of leadership, citizenship, academic excellence. Sandra had an interview with the judges to discuss her application and answer a range of topical questions. In the evening, she presented a five minute prepared speech and responded to two impromptu questions. Sandra chose to speak about a subject close to her heart, and the title for her speech was 'SONDER: Encountering Strangers.'
Even though Sandra did not receive the award on the night to progress through to the next round, she shone with her poise, thoughtful responses and superb delivery.
Well done, Sandra!
