Public speaking

I’ve always had a hard time with public speaking but I think that over the past few years I think that I’ve gotten better at it. I mean I still get nervous and my voice gets a little shaky but that’s just a thing that happens. So if you are like me I think befor your about to go up in front of people or the class and just take a second and take some deep breaths and relax. And after no matter if you did great or you messed it all up don’t worry, and just breathe.
