Sikh high school student wins US oratory tournament with engaging performance

Watch young Kapur talk about the ‘story telling society’ that we all live in.

You must watch this young man in action. He tears down the Gandhi myth, among others.

In the process, Valley High School junior JJ Kapur was named the 2017 Original Oratory Champion at the Tournament of Champions, said to be the most prestigious high school speech and debate competition in the US.

Kapur’s victory caps off a string of high profile awards, including first-place finishes at the Emory University, Minneapple and Harvard University tournaments. Following a prompt to compose and deliver a persuasive speech addressing a social issue, Kapur spoke on his experience as a Sikh-American youth. See here
