My First Speech

April 25, 2011 at 9:46 am 1 comment

I don’t know why I get so nervous talking in front of people. Our first speech was just a reading, I never would have thought just reading something would be so nerve racking until it was my turn to talk.  At first I thought, hey! I can do this, no problem. But then when I stood up in front of the class, my confidence was gone. But afterwords, I realized that it wasn’t so bad.

I really enjoyed reading my classmates reviews, I learned that I wasn’t the only one that was really nervous. In fact, everyone’s comments really helped boost my self confidence. I originally thought that I would get a lot of constructive criticism, but I was wrong, everybody really  liked my reading!
