Sunethma Munasinghe

Sunethma is a grade 12 student attending J Clarke Richardson Collegiate. She began public speaking in the 7th grade through volunteering to emcee her elementary school's monthly assemblies and taking part in the school announcements team. Being passionate about public speaking led her to delve into many roles that require her to speak with different audiences, whether this may be guests at her local museum or student volunteers at the youth-led organization she runs (The Kindness Rays Project).

 

Throughout her time speaking at various concerts and ceremonies, she faced many challenges and successes that gave her the opportunity to experience first-hand the many situations students may go through when public speaking. Sunethma hopes to take these experiences and use them to guide USG mentors to help prepare our students to be the best possible speakers they can be, equipped for any situation.
