Well hello everyone,
Today was a big day for me. You may not know this about me, but I can sometimes get a little shy and nervous when speaking in front of others. During class presentations I’m okay, mainly because I already know everybody in the class. But I certainly don’t know everyone in the school, which is why I was so nervous when the principal asked me to make a morning announcement about National Nutrition Month. He said he wanted to keep it short and sweet, like a strawberry. I, of course, said ‘yes.’ How often does the principal ask a student to make an announcement?! So I walked from class to the front office, and I was extremely nervous! One of the faculty members even asked me a question, but when I opened my mouth no words came out! I started to get really worried: What if they handed me the microphone and I couldn’t speak? Or what if I could and I said something silly? I just kept thinking of all these possible ways I could mess up, that I didn’t even realize it was my turn to speak. They handed me the microphone, and I didn’t even have time to think, I just started talking! “It’s National Nutrition Month! So don’t forget to eat those high-fiber, low-fat foods this month, and every month!” And then I was done. I handed the microphone over and went back to class. When I opened the door, my teacher and classmates were all applauding and congratulating me! It was such a great feeling! I got to remind people of National Nutrition Month and overcome my nervousness about speaking in front of the school at once! Who knows, maybe next week you’ll find me singing on stage with Madame Muscle! Well, maybe not 🙂
Talk to you soon and don’t forget to get my coloring sheet!
