My name is David Manguiat. I am a magician, musician, and student. Part of my school’s CCP Program (College Credit Plus), I have the amazing opportunity of taking classes in college while in high school. Last semester, I took a Public Speaking Course at Wright State University during my sophomore year of high school. My last speech, LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, describes moments and experiences that are very close to my heart. At the end of the semester, I was chosen as the class representative to compete in the college wide COM 1010 Speech Competition. The only high school student present, I was more than ecstatic to share my speech with the other students. In the end, I placed 2nd Overall and won the People’s Choice Award. The whole experience was surreal and completely changed my life. I cannot express how thankful I am of those who inspired and encouraged me along the way! Today, I continue to be inspired and strive to inspire others the way I have been inspired.
