The topic of my 30-second hook was to captivate my audience on the importance of teen depression and why i chose it . I had to record myself a total of 4 times to get my final version. After watching my final recording 3 times, I felt my tone inflection, volume ,and eye contact were great. Due to me already having a problem speaking aloud,it was tough to get through it without constantly saying “umm” but after multiple tries I overcame that problem.I felt very relieved to watch myself on recording,it made me feel as though i completed something.My confidence with oral presentation improved a lot.It improved because i spoke very clear and sounded way more confident.
