Lesson LearnedThe Young Speakers Guild has really taught me how to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. I have made so many memorable experiences just by pushing myself to do something that I have not done before, and encountering situations that I have never been in. It has really taught me to just put myself out there and be willing to take any opportunity coming.

Lesson LearnedMostly, ICC has just help me to step outside my box and remember that it is okay to make mistakes; that is the only way we grow. If I just stayed in my safe zone my whole life I would have missed out on so many of the amazing experiences that I have now been through. ICC has helped me so much in this area and so many others and I can't wait to continue using the skills I've been taught throughout the rest of my life.

Lesson LearnedI think that the most valuable lesson I learned through progressing in YSG was the importance of mentoring. In my chapter, it has been so helpful having people to encourage and help me as I went through YSG, and who inspired me to keep at it when it may not have been easy. Their example has encouraged me to try to do the same for others, and I think this has been the thing about YSG that meant the most to me.

Lesson LearnedI have learned to be confident when speaking to adults and large audiences. Throughout my journey in ICC, I also learned the importance of endurance. To me, public speaking was a very difficult task since it required me to step outside of my comfort zone. It has taken 10 years of dedication and hard work at improving my confidence in my speaking abilities and in the messages that I want to share with my audiences to reach the point I am at today. Knowing the difference between I "have" to between I "get" to is profound; it can change your attitude of public speaking.
