My first oral presentation took place in the 4th grade. My teacher presented us with a hat filled with names of famous people throughout history.
The name fate handed me was Christopher Columbus.
I didn't think much of this and honestly I was just so stressed about doing an actual oral presentation in front of my class that it was hard to focus on anything else. I had a terrible lisp and was extremely shy as a child.
When I told my mom about the project we decided to walk the three blocks to the public library, which was our second home.
