A Kilburn schoolboy has been crowned Digital Final Champion after a winning speech about making the most of the time we all have.
Students from across London and Essex came together on March 24 competing to become a Jack Petchey “Speak Out” Challenge! Digital Final Champion.
Berhan Merha-Tsidk, who attends St Augustine's CofE High School, in Oxford Road, gave a prize-winning talk with a speech titled Time.
In his speech, he said: “Time is ruthless and relentless but it is also priceless and invaluable – we should use it to our advantage."
The Year 10 pupil scooped the top prize of a £100 gift certificate and qualifies for the semi final.
