What have I watched recently in my Digital communications class is this video of this 12 year old girl named Adora Svitak. In this video she makes an inspiring speech about how adults should learn from kids.
In her video, Adora makes an excellent point, how adults have child like behavior and adult like behavior, but in many children adult like behavior is common. I believe it’s how their brain has developed. Another point she stated, how i think children have such good imaginations how they can come up with the impossible simply because they do not know the impossible. I find this astonishing!! Sadly, children grow up they start to realize the reality of life. That the possible is impossible, I believe this starts to happen when the child starts to grow. They start thinking like an adult. For like an example my little sister Destaney; when she was about 5 or 6 she would come up with the most exhilarating stories, but now she is 10 and I have tried to get her to tell s
tories for me like she used to but it will not happen.
A person who inspires is this girl who I go to church with. I can never remember her name but I know she is in 11th or 12th grade. Well she started this program to help young women and single parents. They will provide food, a place to stay a place with love and care for little babies and young parents. I find it inspiring that a girl about my age is raising money for the need. She has put so much of her time to make a change in the next generation.
During Adora’s speech there was so many teachers and students, all these adults listening to what she had to say, I would hope that all of them would take and consider to listen to even more children and learn from them. be able to teach and learn from other children and be inspired the way I was.
Adora’s speech was amazing, she was confident,, she was prepared. The way she kept her audience was thru making comedy. One thing I think she could have worked on was the paper in her hands. I feel like she knew what she was doing. if she had some index cards to remember where she is at. If she needed it that’s okay, because she did well all together.
With me I needed to lean on something to be able to present my speech in front of ten other people, but Adora was amazing. I repeated some words. if i was more confident in myself i would have done better. one thing i knew I was okay at was I used my words, I explained what I was talking about I used examples to get you to imagine what I was talking about.
You are never going to be comfortable in front of crowds unless you’re that one person who likes being a center of attention. I could do it I just need to know how to prepared.
