a World Leading Christian University
Sometimes we tend to forget that in order to reach the top, we need to climb a long flight of stairs first. Joshua Chang (IBM Batch 2018) displayed his wit and tenacity while participating in the 2020 National University Debate Championship (NUDC), an annual competition organized by DIKTI. Chosen as one of the official delegation members for Kopertis VII (East Java), Joshua worked together with Charaqua Vania (English for Creative Industries, Petra Christian University) during the competition, and they advanced together to the Semifinal round in the Open Category. By the grace of God, Joshua was awarded the 5th Best Speaker award after competing against the other 231 debaters, all of whom were qualified to compete at the National level.
We are proud that Joshua has gotten this far on his journey to the top. Congratulations, Joshua, keep moving forward, because you are well on your way!
