Speaking in Public

I spoke to a group of middle school and high school students today. When I get nervous I get so restless. I pace and I devour all the snacks. Wish I could modulate my emotions better when I stand before an audience. Now I get so nervous. Especially today. I was being interviewed by the audience and I was being filmed. Now it's like a time trial. I have to do better each time.

On a sort of silly note, I'm required  to recite a poem in my English class. It's a state requirement apparently. I guess paralyzed students are also required to sprint in p.e. or the deaf kids must sing in choir.

I need to stand in front of the class in poised, dramatic style. Ha ha ha ha. My speech is monotone and garbled. I am pacing and nervous. It's my worst abilities. Not my strengths. Well, we'll see how it pans out. Ha ha.

  1. Hi Ido -

    My name is Scott, and I am a teacher for the group that came to hear your presentation on Sunday. I am currently studying to become a rabbi too. It was amazing to learn about your story and to watch/hear you tell us all about your life, struggles, and accomplishments. I look forward to reading all your future blog posts!
