Public speaking has never been one of my strengths. I’ve always mumbled and stuttered in front of a group. But that doesn’t mean I would pass up the opportunity to inspire a group of students. Blogging has done a lot for me, all the more I want to share to these kids how it really helps one’s career
I was invited by a class to talk about social media. This is my second time already, and though I was still the same dorky guy with a mic, and feeling completely nonsense, I really am thankful for the chance to meet and inspire these hopefuls from a small college in Pampanga.
I see myself in these young hopefuls — I was in my senior year in college when I started blogging, and quite frankly I wasn’t happy with my course so I resorted to distract myself every once in a while to keep me sane. This eventually proved to me the power of a blog. I got to know a lot of people, some became good friends, and some became good bosses and mentors. And it does come with perks! Lots of them. It kept me sane and it gave me a job — good enough reason to share what blogging can do to your career.
I really hope my inability to speak effectively in public didn’t hinder these students to learn from me! I hope they get me again though! I’d love to see them again.
And maybe, I’ll take a John Robert Powers class to kill this stage fright. Haha!
