Strawser 1 Self Analysis I’ve always considered myself a nervous public speaker. But in this class, I’ve found that I did not experience much anxiety. I enjoyed the speeches, had plenty of time to prepare and actually did look forward to it. The part I didn’t look forward to was watching the videotape. After viewing my video I found that I did better than I initially thought. I feel it was a positive experience because I can use that performance to build on.

Now that all is said and done, I really enjoyed the project, and felt bad for those that were so incredibly nervous. I think your class has proved me with a stable Strawser 2 foundation to move forward with my Communications Major at Lindenwood University next semester. Because of the wide variety of topics we covered I feel very confident moving forward. The speech was an excellent end to a very enjoyable class. Thank you....
