Public speaking can make us very nervous. It can make us feel like our hearts are pounding and butterflies are doing summersaults in our stomachs.
But let me start by saying this: Public speaking is our friend! It is our friend because:
- It allows us to share our thoughts, ideas, opinions, and perspectives.
- It is a way for us to share what we do, make, produce, or have learned.
- It can potentially (without bragging, of course!) show others what we are experts in!
- It gives us an opportunity to help other people with what we know.
Are you still with me? Do you agree that, after all, this dreaded, annoying thing called "public speaking," which you may want to run miles away from, is actually quite beneficial for you and your audience?

Here is Jyoti's story about transforming from a quiet girl to a confident keynote speaker...
I never used to be a public speaker. In fact, I was the shyest child in my class growing up. I never raised my hand in class, and the only time I ever spoke was when my teacher asked me to answer a question -- a parent's worst nightmare.
However, something changed drastically in the fourth grade. I moved to a new city and school. I was in a completely new environment with new classmates, new teachers, and no friends. Already being the quietest kid in class at my previous school, I got even quieter and went more and more into my shell.
This all changed one day when the principal of my new school came to my class and asked a few students to stand up and read dialogs as an audition for the school play. The principal selected a few students at random. I was one of the students she asked to come up and audition. I was in shock! I froze ...I thought to myself - I don’t speak, I am shy! She called my name again, and I hesitantly got up from my seat and was given the dialogs. As you can imagine, I was very nervous. I was trembling inside but trying my best to not show that fear on the outside. I had never spoken in front of an entire classroom full of kids, a teacher, and the principal.
I opened my mouth and, as I was about to read the dialogue in a monotonous tone, I remember telling myself that the least I could do now is not embarrass myself and at least speak loudly! And that is exactly what I did. I spoke loudly and clearly. I did not know what public speaking was. I did not know anything about expression, or intonation, or pitching, or voice control, or gestures. All I did was speak loudly and clearly. Surprisingly, I ended up getting the third most important role in the play that year.
And that, my friends, was the beginning of me speaking in front of people! In fifth grade, I got picked for the lead role in the school play and, over the following years in middle school, high school, college, and as a professional, I have done many speeches, talks, debates, etc.
The reason why I am sharing my story with you is that if a very shy, quiet, hesitant, not-so-confident child like me could transform into a confident public speaker, YOU can too! And so can anybody who wants to do it. Public speaking is a skill that can easily be developed. You don’t need to be born with it; in fact, many good public speakers are not born with it. They develop it!
I sincerely thank my principal for forcing me to speak in front of my class against my own will. Had it not been for her encouraging me to go outside my comfort zone, who knows if I would still be that shy, not-so-confident person today.
Sometimes we all need that push to get out of our comfort zone. It is only when we are challenged that we learn new things. I invite you, and lovingly challenge you, to join me on this journey to become the best public speaker you can be!
