The Icebreaker

I recently joined Toastmasters to practice my speaking skills. I have a goal of becoming a public speaker and figured this was a good place to start! This is the first speech, the Icebreaker, which is all about me. This speech is called “My Story”. I flubbed a few words here and there, but did a decent job overall. I’m amazed by how different my perception of how I did during the speech compares with the actual outcome once I sat and watched the video. I was SO nervous and shaky inside, but luckily, it didn’t show as much on the outside!

  1. I have always heard Toastmasters is a wonderful tool to boost morale and confidence while pursuing public speaking. Very interesting icebreaker speech, a subject close and dear to your heart — your life, and great for you to tape it to watch again. This is an inspirational message for many. Thank you for sharing. 😀
