Mc Donald's Story Telling Competition 2017

Recently I joined the Mc Donald's Story Telling competition for year 2017. The title of my story was 'The Floating Stone'. Last year I joined the same competition and told a story about 'The Honest Woodcutter'. I love to tell stories and this year I was not nervous because it was my second time telling stories in front of the judges and others. To read my blog about this for last year's competition, click http://mel-happy-blog.blogspot.my/2016/12/mc-donalds-story-telling-contest.html.


This year there were more than 700 participants from all the states in Malaysia and selected ones were to tell their story in a live audition at a Mc Donald's branch on different dates. I was happy to be chosen for the live audition and told my story early November. I was a little nervous but not too nervous because it was my second time. Here is a video my mommy recorded of me. I did not bring props to win like many other participants. I just joined this to build up my confidence in public speaking.



The final will be on 25 Nov 2017 and the prizes for the winners are as below:


I learnt a lot from joining this contest. I am not that nervous compared to last year's story telling competition. I enjoyed listening to other participants' stories. Good luck to all the participants for the finals!
