Dad was invited to a special recognition of school volunteers and guess who shared a speech in front of the whole school and parents? Yup - me! Last night, I asked Mom about how large was her biggest audience was and she said around 500. Well, I'm not for competing with her, but I think I beat her audience size. I probably had close to 600 kids, parents and teachers! Mom is okay with that.
I was also recognized in the afternoon for a special achievement award for oral presentation. I shocked even myself! But, Mom? She knew all along. I guess that on the surface I may be quiet and shy, but I do have a voice. She believes that this more than a math or reading award tops any other.
