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!
