The topic we chose to talk about was gender inequality. As we were a group of four girls, we really wanted to find something we all felt passionate about and we hope that through our speech we can shed more light on the issue of gender inequality.
After deciding on our topic, we had to think about how to present the message and information effectively. We did not want it to be boring; instead, we hoped to make the presentation interesting, relatable and captivating. Therefore, after much planning and deliberation, we decided to make it more casual like a conversation among friends and we incorporated music to encapsulate our message.
One of the biggest challenges for us was not to let the team down. Each of us was responsible for researching and writing our part of the speech. We needed to make sure that the overall speech was coherent and flowed well.
Another challenge for us was perfecting our performance as a group. During the practice sessions, some of us forgot our lines or the timing was not natural. We tried to encourage each other and did not give up until we were satisfied with presenting our best performance.
Overall, l am grateful for the experience as all of us spent a lot of time and effort to make sure we performed well for not only ourselves but for our group. I always believe that if you try your best, you will eventually succeed, especially if you have the support of your friends!
