My public speaking teacher is very open-minded and is allowing me to do all my speeches about psilocybin mushrooms! 

I have a lot of improvements to make in my public speaking skills and I hope to show you my progress over the semester.

You should know that there was a point in my life where I had social anxiety so bad that I couldn't even talk to people. I would literally go all day without saying a word. I remember going home and having to massage my jaw just because it was sore from not moving all day lol! I have come a long way from the girl who used to cry every day out of loneliness and feeling invisible from the world.

I think it is important that we only compare ourselves to our former selves because it doesn't come as naturally to me and even if I suck at this, I have still personally come a far way! I hope to continue improving because I have so many things that I need to tell the world! I now realize that my words are power and they have the ability to change the world and I hope to do just that!
