The past week I was able to put to use basic public speaking skills instilled in me from Communication 1101. I found myself self-analyzing every emotion and feeling my body was going through when asked to deliver a speech announcing upcoming events American Red Cross would be hosting on and around Fort Benning for the month of March. Periodically on Fort Benning there is a meeting to keep those living in the community informed about happenings around the post. When it was my turn I could feel my heart racing and my nerves start to jump, but then I remembered everything I was taught, took a deep breath and I nailed it.
It’s amazing how you do things so many times in life and you never know there is always room to learn more about a subject. Even though it was not my first time giving a speech to anyone it was my first time knowing the specific of how my body was reacting to the situation and I was able to use those reactions to better deliver my message. By the end of the speech I felt a huge accomplishment and at that moment I was proud to be a, Columbus State University, Communication major.
