It's been about six months since I published my first book, a college survival guide of sorts, and I have updates to share!
I've received so many awesome emails and comments from aspiring authors, authors, and students about my book and I can't express enough appreciation for those.
It means the most hearing that younger students enjoy my book because I wrote it for them.
I got the chance to speak at my college (Georgia Tech) to some incoming students and it was seriously such an honor. I love my college so much and going back to interact with the newest faces on campus was just so much fun. They are all so ambitious and brilliant, which made it even more exciting to be around them.
I used to be terrified of public speaking, even in front of a super small group. I would get sick to my stomach at the thought of being in front of people and having to talk. Still, I literally have to tell myself (in my head) to just do it and pretend like I'm having a 1-1 conversation with someone. Now, I look forward to speaking to people I've never met before and hopefully impacting them in a positive way.
How do you feel about public speaking?
