I decided to take Speaking in Public in the fall of 2018 to fulfill my practice of media requirement. I hated public speaking so I figured it was a good change to try and change that, or at the very least get better at it. Looking back, it definitely made the top three for my favorite classes at UVA. Not only did I end up getting much better at public speaking, I actually like it now. As the very shy person I am, I never in a million years imagined myself saying that. I can't thank Colleen Kelly enough for making that class what it became for me!
