I am Alexander Ingram, student of Ozark Technical Community College. This is my third year as a student at this school. I am studying in the design and drafting program with possibly only two semesters for my degree after this one. One of the more important courses I am taking during my scholar at this school besides the Drafting classes is Public Speaking. I recently gave a self introduction speech at the head of the Public Speaking classroom. This course will not only help me see several places where I could improve but, also I will learn methods to improve and ways to better inform, deliver, and persuade as on personable speech and general speaking in public.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt once stated, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” This quote is a historical quote from World War II; however to me, its significance goes farther than that. This quote is the story of my transition from a child to an adult. I had
After hearing my name being called, I deeply exhaled. With rosy cheeks heating and sweaty hands shaking, I was a petrified twelve-year-old boy who struggled to read his dramatic monologue. As I stood in front of my English class, I could feel every nerve in my body tingle as if
Later that day, we all gathered at the chamber, some of us were apprehensive to be on the stage to present our speeches. All too fast it was my turn and I got to say that I actually did a great job. I was a nervous wreck but managed to present my case with a calmness in my voice. I could feel everyone’s eyes on me as they listen carefully to what I had to say. Surprisingly, I didn’t fail, though I didn’t get to say all of what I had on my paper since there was a time limit. I still ended at a good part, it even sounded like it was supposed to be the end of my speech.
I felt as a silly person when I stand up to read my speech. As I walked toward the podium, I thumped my knee on a chair. It was embarrassing. On top of that, I continued saying “like” and “um,” and I could not stop giggling. I was nervous about being up front. I’ve been practicing this speech frequently, and I still buzzed. It was ten minutes of abscond concerning how people occasionally wish no to accomplish. Did I ever confirm my point? My speech was atrocious; I’m surprised that people didn’t jeer at me. According to my teacher, I should not anguish it, though. Moreover, people get nervous his or her first time speaking in public, consequently she said, with time, I would become a phenomenon at this speech giving the proper material. I
While working on this piece I found a custom typeface called 04b03 that was created by Yuji Oshimoto that i used for the logo and the keywords of each news headline that emulates the look and feel of older computers such as the Commodore 64. I underlined the keywords of each headline in order to make them stand out and grab the audience's attention. The news headlines on the magazine are actually based on real life current events in the video game industry in order to appear authentic. The person on the cover is in silhouette in order to play off of the first headline of the magazine, which is an interview with a Konami employee. The colors featured in this piece are actually based on my college, which are green and orange. The background color
As Coalition Forces prepare to transition from major combat operations to stability operations within the Philippines, the 3/4 ABCT must determine which cities within the Pangasinan province, its assigned area of operations (AO), to prioritize stability tasks. Specifically, the cities of Bayambang, Dagupan, Lingayen, Malasiqui, San Carlos, and Urdaneta are of particular interest. After careful analysis of each city’s Sewer, Water, Electricity, Academics, Transportation, Medical, and Security (SWEAT-MS) disposition, the recommend priority of effort should go first to Malasiqui, then Urdaneta and Bayambang. Remaining 3-4 ABCT resources should prioritize efforts toward San Carlos, Lingayen, and Dagupan.

During class, Professor Mike Miles stated “…that you always revert back to your natural tendencies”. I may have misinterpreted this comment however personally, I must disagree with that statement; as a child into early teenage years, I felt joy out of public speaking, with no cares in the world, whereas now, it is the furthest thing from the truth as I become extremely anxious .
I never thought that I was going to have to give another formal speech, but look where I am this very moment. Miss Beverly taught us the keys to giving a good professional speech, which I am sure some of us will use in college, but she did much more than that. She taught us how to face our fears. Even though it was only the fear of stage fright or speaking in front of people, we are all getting ready to face the big fear of the unknown, the fear of reality. So, when you meet this concept of fear in your life, remember all of the fears that God has allowed you to conquer, because he will help you get the victory again. Isaiah 43:1 says, “But now thus says the Lord…Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are
