Scared of Giving Speeches

 

I absolutely hate giving speeches, or even raising my hand in class. I get so nervous I start shaking. I know in my head that I'm going to do fine, and that I'm prepared and know what I'm supposed to say, but my nerves take charge when I'm actually talking.


The worst part is, when I'm done with the speech, everyone makes fun of me because I was so scared. Is there something I can do to stay under control without everyone knowing?


The best thing to do is rehearse exactly what you are going to say, even when asking a question in class. If you run through your words in your head, you will be less likely to stumble and more confident in your answer. You can also practice in front of your friends and BFFs at home.


Still, though, remember this: Your real confidence will come from realizing that you have valuable insights to lend to every class discussion. What you have to say is just as important as what anyone else has to say.
