I think I did better than my last 1 minute speech because I was ready. When I did the first speech, I was doing in a rush so I didn’t know what to say. However, in the 3 minute speech, I was ready by having palm cards and I knew what to say. The 3 minute speech still made me nervous. I was too nervous that I got confused about what to say, so I decided to end my speech. It was about 1min 17 seconds which was really short. I need to make my speech longer by having more topics and describing more. My volume was fine and my posture was not a problem either.
I think I need to improve on my eye-contact. This is because I was only looking at the camera, however some people were looking at the audience also. I should have looked at the audience more. Also I think I had a lot of pauses. Of course, pauses are needed, but when I had nothing to say, I paused for a long time. I also said words like “umm” which is bad also. I should have skipped to the next topic that I wanted to say. The most thing that I think I should improve is my pace. My pace was too fast. That even I didn’t really know what I was saying. I think I should talk I bit slower so people can be able to hear me.
In my future I think I should keep up with my speech by not saying words like “umm”. I should also have better eye-contact and pace. I should make my speech longer with more description. I think having that will be a lot different.
