MY FIRST PRESENTATION

 Hello everyone. Stammering in front of 70 classmates and 2 teachers, for 40 minutes was a very wonderful and relaxing experience. initially I was like should I do it or not, there were thousands of questions in my mind regarding the presentation , will everyone like it or not and so on but the way it turned out afterwards I never imagined  it to go like that way.

My first step was to speak to teachers about my stammering, I opened myself and discussed freely with my teachers and my close friends, then to more friends and so on, then I told my teacher that I want to do a presentation on stammering. They fully supported me.

I stammered throughout the presentation, doing voluntary stammering and bouncing whenever I got a block. My presentation focussed on considering stammering as an art and diversity rather than as a problem.  

After the presentation my acceptance towards myself has increased, everyone got aware about the issue and they all liked it.

Before my presentation I mailed Sachin sir here is what he replied-

“Whenever there is change there is huge resistance, and that is very normal. And the better choice is always to go ahead and accept it.”

In a way all my thoughts before the presentation was the resistance to go ahead and I had no other choice left but to accept it and go ahead.
I am very grateful and thankful to TISA and everyone of you.

Good Job, Vipul :-)

If I had read this post 2 years back, I would say u are crazy to even think of this.

Things have changed for good now.

Giving a presentation to your class on Stammering, is a step in the right direction. You are awesome.

Cheers
