Another wonderful thing that she does in her speech is when she uses a personal story from her home country and how it affected the people there. When she talked about her story she said, “In my country, Chile, following the brutal torture and murder of a young gay man in a Santiago park, six years ago, a very powerful and moving public discussion took place about the need to challenge hatred and violence toward the LGBT community.” (Bachelet). Her use of a personal connection to the issue really helps to push the point that there is a need for a change and that change needs to happen now. She does not make this speech for the sake of a speech, she has a reason for doing it, and that reason is to raise awareness for these terrible killings and harassments happening around the globe in over seventy countries and provinces (Bachelet). This is another reason why her speech is so powerful, her use of story is very persuasive and gets the point across that there needs to be a change. There is one thing, however, that Michelle Bachelet does not effectively communicate. She uses the acronym LGBTI which stands for “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex”, but the better way of saying it would be LGBTQ+, which stands for “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, and much more”. Not only is this acronym much more inclusive with the spectrum of sexualities and gender identities, but it is also a more commonly known acronym worldwide. Bachelet

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
