I have always been quite a timid person, I used to be the typical little girl that wouldn´t let go of her mother´s hand. This has caused a few problems through out my school life and when having to speak in public, as standing up in front of a class full of people was always my worst nightmare. I´m not the only one with this problem, there are a lot of people in my situation and it is something that should be overcome during university.
There must be an easy solution for stage fright and nervousness. If we started speaking in public thoughout primary and secondary school we would be so used to talking in front of people by the time we got to university that it wouldn´t affect us at all. Obviously, little children are not going to do the same type of presentations as older students, but they will start getting used to it. If public speaking is made into a fun game kids will want to participate and will feel comfortable in no time. This way, instead of dreading it, it is associated with a fun and light hearted activity.
