Student of Government Science from FISIP UB, Rizky Austin won 1st place in the Indonesian University Student Debate Competition (KDMI) on March 18-19 2023. This victory led Rizky to become a representative for Universitas Brawijaya in the 2023 Indonesian Student Debate Competition (KDMI).
From KDMI at the university level, this class of 2021 student won 1st place in the Indonesian Student Debate Competition at the 2023 Universitas Brawijaya level and Best Speaker at the 2023 Universitas Brawijaya Indonesian Student Debate Competition.
“In 2022 I was elected as UB’s representative at KDMI 2022. Actually I didn’t expect to be re-elected as UB’s representative at KDMI 2023,” said Rizky.
He also said that actually there are many friends from other faculties who have good debating skills but he was able to become a champion representing FISIP and UB.
“The competition discussed many things because each round raised a different theme, starting from education, religion, to love,” said Rizky.
According to Rizky, FISIP is still relatively little interested in debate. So he hopes that there will be many more friends from FISIP who are interested in the world of debate.
“In fact, through debate, we can improve our skills, especially public speaking and critical thinking. The faculty can also further facilitate and accommodate friends who are involved in the world of debate, “concluded Rizky. (Uli/FISIP UB/ Humas UB/ Trans. Iir)
