My First Speech!

February 1, 2011 at 3:22 pm 1 comment

I was very proud of myself after giving my first speech last week in class. It came natural to me because it was a reading that means a lot to me personally and I was anxious to present it as it was. After the first few lines it came natural and I felt like I’ve been speaking in public for years now! I learned from the other students that I need to bring the volume of my speech up and I need to look at my audience while I’m giving my speech. From Candee I realized that when I’m getting to important parts I need to pause and bring them out so they are more noticeable to the audience! I like talking and this class let’s me do just that! 🙂 I’m excited for the next few speeches we have.

    I know this isn’t your last blog, but hey, I’m trying REALLY hard to hit everyone. 🙂 I just want to say, you did a great job, and your enthusiasm for cheerleading is wonderful. I totally agree with you that it is VERY much a sport and that all you girls need to be acknowledged as very strong athletes. I hope you follow your dreams and continue to be so set. 🙂
