My goal for 2019 was to work on my public speaking to help me overcome the fear & anxiety I have associated with it.
This involved saying yes to many opportunities (like the one shown in the photo above where I was a panelist for my Alma Mater) that brought my outside my comfort zone and helped me grow as a person and a leader. Also public speaking experiences can also take many forms including stepping up to run a local outreach event for ASCE , volunteering to read a children’s story at an elementary school, or even answering questions about STEM at your local science museum.
These smaller events helped me build my self confidence to say yes to larger audiences and opportunities! I encourage you to make 2020 your year to become the best version of you!
