Today I spoke to a group of 70+ students at Belmont University about homelessness. It was an awareness raising event, between the Sociology Dept and Mobile Loaves and Fishes.
First I talked, and then did an Q&A segment. All toll, it lasted 40 minutes. Sure, at points my voice was shakey but every one was attentive and considerate.
Ii was a miracle that I got through it, given my anxieties. But I did, and got paid for it too. That's nice.
