Before the meet began, Madyson Self (23), practiced her speech in front of the coaches. I most enjoy that in speech your effort and only your effort predicts your success, Self said. You dont have to worry about bringing down the team because it is only you who stands to lose or gain anything based on your performance. Her speech was about billionaires and how they should use their money to help others.

Pushing the Narrative- The Trump Administration continues to be very critical about critics on the economy. I think that the media needs to have a better take on this, Kale Edmonds (22) said. There is a lot of disinformation about the virus and the economy. Due to this confusion, President Donald Trump did daily press conferences to confront these questions head on. This has since been scaled back.
