Challenges of a Public Speaker

By Sarah Aterrado - May 19, 2017

I change my mind.

I do not dream of becoming a sports and outdoor TV host anymore.

This is the third time in a row that I am invited to speak in public. And I wouldn't say I'm good at it. I just watched my last public speaking stint and boy, was I so fidgety. I can hear my voice tremble. Maybe it was the lack of preparation. Maybe it was the air conditioner in full blast. Maybe it was the stomach ache. Or maybe I am just not cut for it.

I am not eloquent enough. I get tongue-twisted. I am easily distracted. And people might think I suck. But you know what? I will still do it anyway because for some reason, I feel so alive whenever I am on stage - even if it's something I know I'm not really good at.

Yes, I no longer dream about becoming a sports and outdoor TV host because I'm starting to realize it. Or at least, napapractice ko na. That's a step. And I know I will get better in time. :)


Anyway, our first run last month was a success. They want us back to speak again. I guess, I didn't really screw it up after all.
