Overcoming Fears: Speaking at the first ‘House Assembly’

Public speaking has never been my forte as I have a great fear of it. I’ve never been able to overcome it. Hence, when I came to Concord, my goal was not only to excel academically but also to grow as a person. In other words, to overcome my fear of public speaking. Never have I imagined myself being able to speak in front of at least a quarter of the school’s population at the ‘House Assembly’, especially during my first week at Concord. But I did it. And this would not have been possible without the help of many teachers, Prefects and friends. They have helped me overcome the limits I once felt and to always believe in myself. My first few weeks at Concord have been nothing short of amazing.
