Assuring words about Jaw War
Like we all see when we were there and I think which is still currently true, Jaw War is one of the biggest public speaking competitions in west Africa. It gives a platform that nothing can beat.
Before becoming an HR professional, one comment that was consistent with everybody each time I interviewed for some job roles was this: “you speak very well”. This can be attributed to my active participation in the Jaw War because it serves as a platform for making people.
Communication today is one of the vital and most important skills anybody must have and one of the things Jaw War does is to train you in that, because there’s no way you will be a speaker without first being a writer. Jaw War expands you in the sense that, it stretches you and then it puts you out there before the audience. Assuringly, if anyone can stand before your audience, there is no other audience you cannot stand before.
Similarly, Jaw War is a really great platform for discourse, for discussing very germane issues in our country and in the world at large, we will begin to see from the two perspectives. It affords you the skills that you will not learn in the classroom- teamwork, research, writing, leadership, etc.
I see it growing, expanding, beyond the shores of UI Nigeria and the world out there.
