Last night Fairfield University presented its 2nd annual Speech Showcase. The showcase included six students, Natalie Sangiacomo, Diana Lordi, Allison Ford, Lauren Londregan, Mabel Polanco, Ellen Padovano and Alejandro Ulloa, who all advocated for different organizations and causes.
The event was compromised of six speeches, accompanied by videos and sound clips. The subjects covered included the Invisible Children Organization, Family House, Digital Divide, Mental Health Hospitals in Conn., the Chilean Minders, the Alzheimer’s Association and the Playing for Change Foundation.
The goal of the showcase was to bring awareness to students about issues that are facing young people both at home and around the world.
While each student spoke on different topics, that meaning flowed through each speech. Student’s were called to give back and think about the world on a much bigger scale.
