My Presentation on "Stammering" by Jagdish

Hello everyone,
 
              I am Jagdish, a member of the delhi chapter of TISA. I'm happy to write my first blog post here. I am a pharmacy student in 4th year of college, and have been attending shg meetings from last year.
I'm doing an internship at a company, and its almost over now. I had the opportunity of giving a presentation to the scientists working there, on any topic of my choice , so i grabbed the opportunity and decided to present about stuttering,, and one other topic.
I dont know exactly why i chose to present on stuttering, as i would not have imagined doing it in my college.... Maybe because the people were understanding,,or were not my peers,,and wouldn't judge me harshly etc....

          So, today i did gave the presentation, in which i included the definition,,impact on children and adults who stutter,,epidemiology,,origin,
,and of course about tisa. I had a lot to say but i couldn't really say all of the things i wanted to say, because of nervousness i guess. I did not stutter or block much really, but i noticed that i could not get or recall any ideas i had in mind, even by looking at the slides.
 The reactions of the people, was great, not negative at all. They asked some questions too,  which i tried to answer.
Although, i was not happy with what i managed to say, but i'm really happy that i actually did it.

               I did not block much but while speaking , i could feel my mind going blank and, dry throat and lips. Maybe these will go away with time, and get better with more practice.....

            I think i did my teeny bit for promoting tisa atleast....:D  and spreading awareness about it....)
So thats what i wanted to share today...with you all,,and i'd like to wish you all good luck for everything in your lives..
 
Thank you,
Jagdish.

Dear Jagdesh, You started breaking iceberg. being the 1st one, it will be like this only. If you give few more presentations,you will gain more confidence and courage. Face the fear is the only way. All the best and keep moving like this.

Bravo- Jagdish. You have not done teeny bit- you have done a HUGE favor to TISA and also to yourself.. This is how TISA and all its members and friends can grow-
Just keep talking and sharing.. All those feelings of confusion and not knowing what to say next- will go away if you keep on doing such presentations again and again..
Next time, get a friend to do a video recording as well..Keep challenging yourself..
