Margaret Alvine – Winner, Best College Speech

Margaret Alvine is a 19-year-old Freshman at John Paul the Great Catholic University in San Diego, majoring in Communications Media with an emphasis in Graphic Design.

A proud alum of the National Christian Forensics and Communications Association, Margaret enjoys public speaking and performing. Last year, her speech Historical Amnesia, on the importance of learning from history, placed 9th in the NCFCA Region II Championships.

The French Revolution and its similarities and differences from the American Revolution have always interested her, and the First Amendment Rights gave her an interesting way to explore why these two supposedly similar revolutions had such different outcomes. In her senior year of high school, her essay on Religious Freedom won Constituting America’s high school essay contest. She is so excited to have won again and have more opportunities to work with Constituting America.

In her spare time, Margaret writes apologetics pieces (explanations of Catholic beliefs) for the Marian Ministry at JPCatholic, and is involved with Swing Dance Club, Photography Club, Improv Team, and Sketch Comedy Club. She enjoys singing, dancing, and discussing books, life, and work with friends.
