    T course, and in it I had to write a little presentation on your favourite entrepreneur. At the time, in class, I had a coke cola bottle, so decided to write it in them. It's a fascinating story about John Pemberton. I rehearsed it over and over. And when I presented it in...

    and finding dozens of eyes staring back at you. Look, observing, possibly judging. Who knows what thoughts are running through their minds. You stand there, ready to get it over with. You're sweating. Butterflies in your stomach. Shaking. There's a stutter in your voice. You...

    I only have stage fright

    when I play clarinet. The stage is home to me as an actor so that doesn't bother me. I only freak out and start shaking when I play clarinet. I sit second chair so I'm not sure why I am this way. Oh well, no big deal.
