    Especially Large Crowds

    When I'm speaking in public I notice I feel more comfortable when the crowd is large 250 or more. Funny enough when the crowd is only about 10-25 I get nervous. *smiling* silly me!

    I'm a Bit of a Ham

    I enjoy getting up on stage and performing. Whether I'm singing or acting, I find those moments in front of the crowd exhilirating. For me, public speaking is an extension of that. After the first few seconds of butterflies, I start to enjoy myself. I like getting up in front of...

    I don't know what's happened to me.

    The Voice And The Message

    I give a lot of speeches.  More than I thought I would.  Apparently, I am considered different and interesting.  I will talk about research that I have done or give talks on why funding should be given to certain research projects.  I have a good voice and wonderful presence...
