Fears, fears I will overcome...

This week-end was a good one. I gave my first public speech at the Simmons Undergraduate Conference on Friday afternoon. I want to congratulate all the honors students who gave various beautiful speeches. I want to thank the honors students for the mental support as well. I was freaking out and having them telling me everything would be okay was amazing! I decided to talk at the conference to get out of my comfort zone. I would never have done that at another point in my life. My first year at Simmons brought me so much! I am just a freshman but I feel already so much stronger as a person, as a student, as a role model!!!

Anyways...back to the speech, I was nervous, my heart was beating so fast, but I thought that I've worked way too much to let my fears win that day! I prepared the speech for two moths. Anywhere I would go I was thinking about my performance. I went to seminars to learn more about the subject, even at church I would study the way the priest would deliver the mass. I wanted it to be great, and as soon as I opened my mouth seeing my friends in the room who came to support was so joyful. I felt fearless at the moment and that was a great feeling. :) WHO RUN THE WORLD??? GIRLS!!!!!!!!! :)
