Mastering Public Speaking Workshop at AUL

We are thrilled to share the resounding success of our recent “Mastering Public Speaking” workshop, led by the esteemed Marleny Cruz, CEO of SOS Multi-media group. This event was a transformative experience for our middle school students, equipping them with essential communication skills and boosting their confidence in public speaking.

A highlight of the day was witnessing our students’ impressive improvisation skills during scripted scenarios. From reporting breaking news to delivering a weather forecast and guiding a museum tour, their creativity and poise on stage were commendable.

AUL Spring Showcase: Talent, Creativity, and Community
