Speaking is one of the most terrifying and most rewarding things that I do. Before the event, I am usually nervous, but once I see and connect with the audience, then I relax and share my story. Seeing the reactions from the audience inspires me. To offer someone else hope, through my struggles and hardships, is one of my greatest blessings from God. It brings joy into my heart.
