If you haven’t heard me rave and stress about my Public Communications class, we probably haven’t spoken recently! Every class has been enjoyable, entertaining, empowering, and exciting in so many ways. I love and appreciate hearing people’s stories and having to reflect to dig for my own to share. So far, our speech topics have been introduction, what makes you you, influential leader/person, and occasion speech.
From this class, I have already learned a lot about myself and the ways I process internally and present myself externally through the reviewing and reflecting on recordings of my speeches. I remember the many thoughts racing through my mind and the feelings I have while I give my speech and how I actually articulate them with the words I choose to speak. The mix of what you think happened and what actually happened make you feel one way, yet when you watch the footage, you realize that it is nothing like what you were experiencing within yourself. This is the beauty of grace and self-love. Plus Buck, the instructor, is incredibly genuine and kind and wants his students to challenge themselves and do well in their own way.
If anyone is considering a class that doesn’t require heavy, theoretical reading and allows them to learn about themselves and others and how to improve their communication skills, public communications is the one.
