Finally I got over with my POL. You see, presenting has been one of my weaknesses throughout my whole life. I wasn’t scared of presenting; I just didn’t believe I was good at it. When Mr. Bon started talking about the POL Project, and how we had to speak in a certain way so that the audience would get the message we wanted to transmit, my heart froze, I was terrified. I decided that there was no way I could possibly succeed in a project like this. Fort he last 4 weeks I have had this weird feeling inside my stomach, like a mixture of fear, nerves, and regret all mixed up together, this feeling didn’t let me think of anything else more than the POL. I don’t recall ever working harder in another project in my whole life. This Project touched two of my weakest areas, the media part, and the presenting part. I had no strengths or experience in any of them, but I wanted to do well on this Project, so I decided to work my but off so at least I could say I gave the best of me.
In the thanksgiving break, I worked absolutely every day; I learned how to work with Keynote, I practice my speaking skills, to make sure they where clear, and most of all, I tried to make my presentation flawless. At first I used to absolutely hate this project, but now that I’ve got it over with, I look back and see how much this project has helped me improve and grow. You see that’s the thing, I was totally terrified and scared about this project, and that’s what pushed me to put so much effort on it. I felt like I was thrown to the water without knowing how to swim, I had no experience presenting, nor using Keynote, but just the desire to make a good job in this project motivated me to give my all. I look back 4 weeks ago, and see how much I have grown, it's amazing what motivation can do. I’ve never experienced so much growth as a learner, I feel like I was forced to learn new things if I wanted to make a good POL, and so I did. I seeked for nothing less than great, and I remain proud of my work.
