I am taking a public speaking class this semester, and we already got our first assignment! We are to give a speech about an experience, moment, object, person, etc. that changed our lives. What was a turning point and why? I have been brainstorming and here’s what I’ve come up with:

My life is full of monumental experiences. I could tell you about the time I went to China with out my family, my trip to New York, moving to a new town, or the transition from homeschool to public school. I could talk about the many inspirational people in my life, such as my Dad, cousin, youth minister, or professor. But I believe the most influential moment in my life is not a person or place at all. It is an object. 

The book “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a world that can’t stop talking” by Susan Cain shaped my life immeasurably. 


That’s all I’ve got so far, what do you think?

What's on your mind?
