On a random day in late May I was facing one of my greatest fears. I was about to give a speech in front of many people.
I don't know if I can! So many things could go wrong!
Makayla stop worrying. You will be able to give the graduation speech.
As I walked up to the stage I tried to ignore the fact that there were many people in the gymnasium. I tried to think positively and believe I could give the speech. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't stop thinking about all the ways it could go wrong.
The principal gave out the diplomas.
This is going by so quickly! Its almost my turn to speak.
Now I would like to introduce Makayla Ritko.
I don't know if I can do this. My heart is pounding and there are so many people staring at me.
Nine years ago...
I was able to recite the speech despite my nervousness. That day taught me to face my fears.
