Honestly I never expected to give a speech about my mom. I’ve had to tell that story a few times now, to casa, to my department chair, for random reasons like explaining why I can’t take classes m/w/f or why I have my financial aid set up the way I do so I also didn’t expect a speech about it to be that emotional. But there’s a difference between sitting in an office and stating things factually and standing in front of an audience to tell a story. Still, I think I held it together pretty well all things considered. I think it was time. As far as the speaking, organization and quality of the message was, I’d probably give it a solid 7/10.
