For my third assignment for this week, I chose to do a Ted Talk. The assignment was to listen to the way the speaker emphasized words and pauses, and try to recreate it using his speech. I’m always super nervous when it comes to public speaking, so this was definitely something that I needed practice in! I always talk really fast and tend to forget to emphasize words. It was a little difficult since this wasn’t my story to tell, but it was still good practice to integrate pauses and emphasis on certain words.
