    I'm actually pretty good. The goal is giving zero f---s what others think of you. Also taking a pill to calm your nerves helps. #yearofthescorpion

    I’m not that good at public speaking and would rather avoid it, but I’ve improved a lot over the years throughout my education. Now I don’t really care about what others think when I’m presenting tbh. Once you realise it’s natural to get nervous for it/everyone else feels the same way, it helps a lot

    I wouldn't say I'm an amazing public speaker, but I think I can hold my own. Like halfway through college I realized it's only as nerve-racking as you make it. Part of my problem was I never practiced so I'd f--- up, and honestly just running through your presentation three times or so makes the difference between you operating at 50-60% confidence and 95% confidence. I also feel like taking a semi-extemporaneous approach is better than a flat-out memorized presentation, which also takes a little pressure off you and leaves you room to improvise and go off-cue.

    Doing stand up a few times also helped cuz I can't see myself ever being more nervous for public speaking than the first time I did stand up.

    I feel very comfortable while public speaking. I don't see why people always act so nervous, nobody cares if you screw up or not, they're not going to make a big fuss about it because it's irrelevant to their lives.

    Always felt pretty comfortable presenting. I placed first in a tri-state academic fair for impromptu speaking. Credited my freestyling skills for it.

    Congrats m8, got my last presentations for Grad School coming up.

    Was forced to read the Bible at Sunday liturgies when I was in middle/high school. Certainly helped numb the silly self-fullfilling prophecies we tend to put in our heads before speaking in front of an audience.

    I like to think I'm a good public speaker. I went to an arts middle & high school for writing. So there's been countless times I've performed in front of ppl, memorized works, been a part of plays, all that good s---. & I just got done with an interview where I hope I spoke well lmao.

    I was ok in middle and high school, but I've never been very coherent or proper when I'm talking. And I feel like now I would probably be really nervous since I've kind of developed anxiety.

    I wasn't very good at first, but I've become a very good at it now. I think my largest audience thus far was 150 or so people.
