Although, I feel confident when speaking in public I still have difficulty selecting topic to talk about. I also become very indecisive when it comes to starting a speech. This may be due to the fact that my organization skills can at times be sub-par. I hope over the course of the semester I will be able to increase my abilities as a speaker and become more encouraged to speak more often. I am a loud, energetic, speaker with the confidence to try and convince others of my opinions. Others may say that I can be very persuasive. I would agree with this. I am a waiter at a restaurant back home in New Lenox, and it is my experience that tells me that it is my job to convince you to get dessert even though you have no intention of considering it let alone getting it. So I need to be able to persuade you to get off of your low carbohydrate diet or whatever the new dieting craze is.
