Every End Has A New Beginning

When starting the class, I couldn’t wait to get it over with. I was literally counting down the weeks for about the first 4 or 5 classes. Now that I have given my final speech, I’m not ready for it to end!
Before, speaking in front of more than 2 or 3 people seemed like a nightmare, and I would make myself sick over it. But with all the support and encouragement from everyone in the classroom definitely helped. I think that’s one of the things I’ll miss most about Speech class, the bond with everyone in the room. Getting to know the people, seeing or hearing where they’ve come from and the journey they’re on just really set this class apart from any other for me.

I feel like I am prepared to speak out in front of a crowd when the time comes, and that was my goal (although it seemed unreachable at one point). Thank you to all my classmates and Mrs. Basford for the time, energy, patience, and encouragement invested.
