An amazing accomplishment came after Tanusya Manimuttu chalked yet another plateau by gaining an entry as the 2nd Runner Up at the 6th Canada International Youth Public Speaking and Debate Tournament.

The Malaysian student from SMK Damansara Utama here boasts an impressive slew of talents from an ace student to a fabulous speaker. Spearheaded by the Royal Commonwealth Society BC Branch and Canada Youth Education Society, the tournament was held virtually from the 22nd - 23rd of October 2022. On behalf of Tanusya, Consul Padli Ahmad attended the Awards Ceremony to accept the award and certificate.

According to the official site, the much-anticipated tournament emphasises the vital performance of youth participation and leadership, thus empowering young individuals to achieve greater confidence in their future growth.

The contest was open to all youth aged 6-17 of all nationalities as the Canada International Youth Public Speaking & Debate Tournament is here to help every youth by achieving their personal best record.

With the theme of ‘Your New World’, the 14 years-old young lass stretched out from her comfort zone and participated in the Pacific Time Zone event from 11 pm - 8 am (MY time) to display her public speaking skills with other students across the globe.

Despite devoting all her energy towards her passion, the judges have personally acknowledged her commitment level. With that being said, Tanusya has also been crowned as ICON NILAM 2020 and emerged as one of the Top-3 Winners in Kids Got Talent Malaysia - Season 3 (2019). Since then, she started to master each step and gained confidence on the big stage individually, thanks to the Kids Got Talent Malaysia platform.

We are definitely spellbound and impressed with Tanusya’s ability and can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us. Keep making us exceedingly proud, Lil one!
