My First Speech

October 14, 2010 at 9:43 am Leave a comment

The idea alone of speaking in front of a group of people, to me, is a little nerve-racking. I talk to people every day about many subjects, but even this had not prepared me for what I was about to go through. I wanted to take this class to help me gain experience in public speaking. As time goes on and I deliver more and more speeches, I hope and expect that my skills as a public speaker will improve tremendously. I am very glad that I decided to take speech class instead of just another literature course. If I had not made this decision I may have been at a disadvantage later on in life.

When I first started the speech I found that I was pretty nervous. However, as I kept reading I found myself settling down and becoming less nervous and less anxious. All in all, I believe that for my first speech it went very well. I am also very glad that it is out-of-the-way and we can move on. I am looking forward to our next speech. I will take it as a personal challenge and try to improve on the things I may not have done so well on the in the first speech.
