Lesson LearnedI learned how to be more responsible with my time. I also learned that I have to be patient with others when I need them to do something, and when I am in a hurry. Another thing that ICC has taught me is to how to think about what the other person's perspective is and how they view the situation.

Lesson LearnedI believe that understanding how to properly analyze my audience and know what they want or need to hear is one of the most valuable lessons I've learned in the Young Speakers Guild Series. This has helped me at home because I have had to learn to read my families moods so that I can treat them accordingly.

Michael Wassmer

Lesson LearnedI obtained the knowledge that if you work hard on an assignment and put the time in, you end up with a product you like. If you procrastinate and wait until the last minute, you end up with a product you don’t like. I grew and got better at public speaking. I learned how to plan things ahead of time. I’ve become a better leader and writer. I've been able to speak at various venues, like assisted living facilities and charter school classes, and most recently I was able to present my personal testimony to a large group of people who were attending a missions trip fundraiser for our family. I have helped to mentor the YCC students in my chapter. I’ve also helped my mom when she teaches Sunday school to mentor the children there.

Lesson LearnedOne of the most valuable lessons I learned going through the Young Speakers Guild is how to connect to your audience. I found this to be very important because if there is no connection, then why is anyone there? Another thing was the P3+R3=C3, which taught me how to find a purpose, prepare a script and present, and the importance of incorporating other people feedback.

Lesson Learned"If you care, you'll prepare!" is a saying that I learned in my chapter, and after having written multiple speeches for myself, and then trying to write one for my audience, the motivation, and confidence I experienced were very different! I then realized the greatest tool for a communicator for Christ is caring for our audience.

Lesson LearnedIn all my years of being in YSG, the most valuable lesson I have learned is being able to go in front of an audience and share my thoughts to others with confidence and not in fear. I am able to be open in sharing in my ideas.

Lesson LearnedHaving been in ICC for 7 years, and especially with the YSG program, I am learning that accepting assistance and feedback isn't bad, but is quite good. It is humbling and helpful. I've also learned that it is a gift to have people wiling to help, give constructive feedback, and encourage me along the way. If we didn't have help, we might think our speeches are great all on our own. This would make us prideful and wouldn't be true. Receiving feedback has become easier for me if I look at it and recognize that people are trying to help me succeed rather than just pointing out what's wrong. Sometimes, it is still hard for me to accept feedback, but I am working on this.
