[quote with pic of schoolchildren]

"I was a witness and I really enjoyed learning my script ready to be asked questions about it by the opposition. She was very good at being intimidating, so I had to really up my game to match her skills. This experience has been great for my public speaking skills and confidence, as I am not an outgoing person, but the others on the team are. Overall, this has been great fun and I have thoroughly enjoyed it."

"I feel the Mock Trials give me an opportunity to support young people and, by telling others about it, to redress the negative impression of young people perpetrated by the media.
