12 April 2017 – Each year Universitas Indonesia holds the oldest and most prestigious national English competition: the ALSA E. Sheila Nur Amalina from International Relations at IULI did very well in her first public competition appearance. She finished third in the presentation part of the competition, but won first place for the paper itself.
She displayed her intelligence and her speaking ability. However, it was the paper part of the competition where Sheila shone. She won from a very strong field from all over Indonesia. The topic was “Freedom of Speech in Indonesia” and Sheila was the only competitor who really managed to place the topic in a historical and international context. The awarding ceremony was held on Tuesday, April 11, evening. This achievement is another example of the quality of IULI students, and by extension, of IULI’s approach to education. (MiE/SaK)
