Soundbites: Testimony

Typically, we give you a solid summary about the episode. However, this story doesn’t really need us to introduction. You need to hear from the person who experienced it. In the spring of 2012, we met Tunette Powell at a collegiate speech tournament. Little did we know, she would blow our minds. During the speech season, she performed a persuasion on the subject of drug abuse. The topic hit close to home because her father was a drug addict. However, she felt her story needed to be told and she ended up winning a National Championship with the speech. Now listen to a more intimate depiction of her life with a father who had an addiction.
