Speech One Outline and Write out

Better late than never! 🙂



Name and where you are from and why you chose this topic

1st Point:

Biking has a lot of benefits when done properly

2nd Point:

How working on a stationary bike is good

3rd Point:

Biking helps you mentally as well come back into shape


Biking in general really helped rehabilitate my knee and that is why I took this class because biking has been a huge part of my life.

Write out:

Hi my name is Tharshana Prakash I am from Walnut Creek and I am a psychology major. There are a lot of biking psychology topics that I could have done for my presentation but I decided to do my presentation of how biking can help rehabilitate your knee mentally and physically. I did this because when I was a freshman in high school I tore my ACL playing soccer. After surgery for the rest of high school I biked a lot to rehabilitate my knee. This helped me mentally and physically and throughout that time period I realized that any type of biking stationary or on the road really helps you physically and mentally come back into shape.

Biking has a lot of benefits when done properly. After knee injuries biking can restore knee joint range of movement. This helps with making sure you are not in pain while walking.  It can also increase knee joint stability and increase the strength of muscles around the knee and can decrease pain. From personal experience biking really helped me bring back the strength in my entire leg. Biking is good for your leg because It is non-weight bearing and has low impact. It uses a range of motion that is needed for most activities of daily life. It  has controlled movement so you do not over or under work the muscles in the leg and it minimizes further injury


Biking also nourishes joint cartilage, and is also good for the heart because it works the muscles needed for you to stay healthy. I started on a stationary bike for the first two months and then after I felt comfortable with the movement and action and switched to the bike on the road and have been riding on the road ever since.


Biking helps you mentally because it gives you an escape and another place to go and not think about anything. Personally when I bike, I don’t think about anything and I just let my mind wander and be happy. When athletes who have not played sports for long periods of time get back on the bike it gives them a sense of hope and accomplishment. It gives them they hope that they will be back out there playing sports and running around having fun. Biking helps athletes mentally and physically and it has helped me come back to being fit and healthy.

I never went back to play soccer. A part of me was kind of scared to but I went back to dance. And the summer before the start of the fall semester, I did a two-hour solo performance and my knee felt great.

Youtube Voice

Many Youtubers that I watch are those who I feel have in one way or another have found their youtube voice. This is the reason why watching some youtubers is a lot more interesting than others. YouTube is a platform that can be used to help one person reach out to millions of others just by their voice. This is the same type of impact that a lot of people want to make in their lifetime but do not know where to start. Famous Youtubers like Miranda Sings, Jus Reign, and NigaHiga use theatric skills as well as their youtube voice which makes whatever they argue seem a lot more compelling. These youtubers do not have any special ability that makes them different from us, but they do know to use their voice to their advantage. I would love to be a youtuber because I want to put myself out there and be famous. Alas I don’t have enough time for it.

Speech 3 Topic

In class today I talked about my experience of audience and I wasn’t sure how to relate it to biking so I am probably not going to. I am going to talk about my dance experience with audience and how having that surreal experience on stage is because of my audience.


Audience Post

As a performer myself, I believe audience is a huge part of the whole experience.  Getting to convey your message to an audience takes a lot of self confidence and respect for yourself and whatever art form you are doing. As a dancer and a singer connecting to my art form is the greatest tool needed to convey what I am performing to my audience. The audience I try to send my message out to from my songs and dances are people who understand and really connect to what I am saying and expressing,but I want to perform in a manner that people who are not familiar with the arts can understand too because reaching out to all types of people is very important because you want your art form to spread. Of course I want my audience to enjoy and understand what I am performing because if they enjoy my performance that energy and vibe from them encourages me and boosts my confidence and helps me portray my message.

Speech 2 reflection

I thought my speech two was okay. I was really passionate about my topic and it was exciting to research and talk about what I learned to the class. I am pretty sure I could have done better but it is okay. I liked everyones speeches because they were all interesting and fun to listen too. I think next time my speech will be better hopefully but this was a great experience.
