In his speech titled "Good-bye to My Cowardly Self," he talked about his struggles with English when he came to the U.S. and his challenges in overcoming it. His victory was unanimous among the judges, and his lively and heartfelt speech touched the audience. Blair did a superb job! Congratulations to Blair!
