UPDATE: Wow, I can’t believe this got so many views! I ended up getting top 5 in the national competition. Since then, I was the youngest guy ever to reach the District level of Toastmasters, the largest speech competition in the world and placed 2nd in District, putting me 1 spot away from International.
I’m currently a strategy consultant at IBM. If any of you would like to reach out to me for advice on public speaking, definitely hit me up at email@example.com 🙂 I love helping others empower themselves.
