Have you ever had to speak in front of people either for a project, presentation or interview and completely bombed because your nerves got the best of you?
Public speaking can be scary as hell! Mostly because it's the fear of failure and rejection wrapped into one with a little "try not to sound stupid" to top it all off.
I remember one time in particular, I was looking at the syllabus for one of my college classes and realizing "Wait. We're gonna have to actually speak in front of the whole class? Nah. I'm good."
I was dreading having to get up in front of the room.
But it was one of my required classes and there was no turning back.
When I got up in front of the room for my first speech, my hands were shaking and so was my voice. I thought "Great, here's a bunch of people who are going to judge me while I try not to sound like an idiot isn't this fun!"
After I got through it I opened my eyes and realized "Hey, I'm alive!" but I hated that fact that I let fear and nervousness hold me back and stop me from really being able to speak in front of people.
Then earlier this year I found myself in another class where I had to deliver another speech with almost no prep.
But I was determined to not let those nerves get the best of me.
As scary as speaking in front of people can be, in whatever scenario, it's such an essential skill to have and fear to conquer which is why I wanted to share what helped me take in on in this week's video!
Watch it here and comment below!
When I have a presentation and miss calls us to the carpet and she pulls out little sticks with names on them, i start crying, but she dont care, im doing mine tomorrow, aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :(
I was chosen to speak in front of the whole school- about 1000 students and it's tomorrow. I should have said no, but then confident me thought I could do this. Then the realization of how scary this whole thing is hit me right before it happens. :( Wish me luck.
Today I had to present a poster and while I was reading off the poster with a really shaky voice, my teacher noticed that my hands and legs were shaking a lot so she held the poster for me 😩😖 I felt so embarrassed and got even more nervous...Oh yeah, I have a stutter too.
I have to make a presentation tomorrow and I am so nervous like my palms are sweaty and I've been crying so much because I don't like presenting *AT ALL* My heart beats fast and I start gasping. Plus my partner didn't even help me and she's probably not going to show up and if she does I'll probably do all the work and I'm just so stressed!
well, i’m gonna sing in front of the whole school, me and my friend, and it’s gonna be a joke, and we’re gonna scream the titanic song, in a weird voice....i’m still scared, while i’m the least nervous person out of all of us...
So I was in the 5th grade and I was about to present and all my friends were saying “you got this!” And, “ you will do great!” So I was SUPER nervous, and I get up there and my hands were shaking like crazy and all of these thoughts were going through my mind like, you are going to embarrass yourself in front of everyone. So I am standing there, legs and hands shaking and my teacher is fell in me to take deep breaths to calm down and so I did that and then I started to read. It wasn’t how people normally read, it was how I read when I am nervous like I will start reading when I am nervous and then I will start gulping down my spit and it will make a gulping sound and it’s really embarrassing because people notice it😬 but the only good thing about that speech was that my crush was gone so I didn’t embarrass myself in front of him!😏
I have a presentation tomorrow and I’m so scared. I always cry infront of many people...... my heart stops and I panic. I feel so nervous I want to cry all the time 😬 ❤️ hope this video helps me tomorrow..
Edit: It’s been a couple of days sorry I haven’t updated, but it went well! I just stared at the wall and talked! It worked! It was very pressuring but after it’s all over I felt relieved.

Hi I appreciated you trying to help but none of these tips are helping me I'm now in secondary school and having my first presentation tomorrow. I had huge nerve issues in primary school my lips would shake I would go all red in the face and stutter while talking my heart is always going to fast even the night before my presentation . wish me luck
I am prepared for all my prez but the moment when the teacher says “U can start” I just get stressed. My mind will go blank and I dont even know what I want to talk about xD All these classmates staring at u....na-ah...My voice goes high pitch xD
i’m so afraid to speak in front of others, i just feel like they’re gonna talk abt me. it’s my first year of ROTC & they want us to talk abt anything we want for 1 - 3 minutes & i refused to; everyone stared at me at class & i turned red & tears were in my eyes. i covered my face, the tears released & i feel like i embarrassed myself in front of everyone by making my self look like a big cry baby. i honestly don’t want to do the speech tmr, but if we don’t do it, we either get 100 or a 0. i just wanna take the 0 & i DONT want to go to the class anymore either.
Something I really hate is when teachers just call on people randomly or use those popsicle sticks with peoples names on it and she picks one of them; when I see her picking one of them my heart starts beating so fast and I get nervous it’s almost always me that gets picked and I always have nothing to say and people just stare at me .-.
I had drama class and I had to do a monaluge and I was TERRIFIED. My chest started to hurt and I started to tremble uncontrollably. I also started stuttering and I could feel my eyes starting to water.
I could feel people's eyes on me as they watch me fight back tears as I struggled through the script. Witch had to be memorized so I couldn't hide behind the pages but, look at my classmates as I horribley acted out my scene.... It was traumatizing
I start to say nonsense things when I get nervous. Like I have something in my mind that I wanna say but when it's my turn I can't really say what I wanna say because of nervousness. My mind just goes blank and it makes me so annoyed of myself. I also have a weak voice which makes it even worser.
Hey everyone! if you think that you're alone, you're not. You think your the only one who has to present? Nopee XD I have too. I'm a very shy student when it comes to presenting or acting to the class, but i get nervous because of the students you probably think they are going to make fun of you well you know you're not at school to be made fun of or judged you're there to learn and just be happy. Remember if you're going to have a presentation or do anything in front of people always remember the three things *Smile* *Brave* *Happy* I call this SBH remember whenever you get frightened remember SBH always smile be brave and stay happy/positive :D So GoodLuck to anyone who is doing anything similar to this <3 Hope this helped you if it did please let me know by commenting or liking this comment.
I've done several group presentations in my life, speech class and orientations for employees each month and I was okay. Yesterday I bombed my marketing practice presentation where I blanked, my legs shaked, my heart was pounding I swear I felt like fainting!! I think maybe it's because I didn't know my content wel since we only had one day putting it all together but it was a horrible embarrassing feeling freezing!!!
I’m doing a show in class called super stan and my teacher keeps shouting at me cos im not loud enough .But, when their is a kid who’s much quieter that me , my teacher says well done to them. But to me she keeps complaining that I’m not loud enough but all my friends can hear me but all the teachers cant . Do you have any tips for being louder ? (I’m in year 6)
+Rika-chan Thanks Rika, It was nerve recking..40 eyes staring wasn't easy to take but i rocked it..Here is a tip that worked for me.. When you get up there pretend like they don't know anything and you're teaching them..say the words Teach Them to yourself and nerves will slowly go away..
#1 doesn't apply for the stuff that I get nervous for. I get nervous when in class the teacher has us do like a 15 minute assignment and then present it in front of the class. or ive heard some classes have you pick a topic out of a hat and present what you know about it? thats when i get extremely nervous.
IN my school we have TUSC (totally unbelievable speaking club) we have a bunch of roles some that include making dances and presenting them infront of everyone. I have to present every week and sometimes twice a week. It really sucks but giving speeches is worse..
When I was in the first day of school last year, everyone was presenting and like saying they’re names, age, and what they don’t like about, so almost half of the class presented they’re selves and I was like at the corner like pretending to do something so that the teacher won’t call me, BUT OF COURSE SHE WOULD EVERYONE HAS TO PRESENT, and then I was called and I was like “me?, oh o-okay” then I slowly walked on front of the class then I started speaking I was speaking like everything was okay and stuff like that, and when I came back to my
Seat I drank a lott of water because I was so nervous at that point, but I got to meet new friends that’s good tho.
I get really nervous when I have to present a PowerPoint for history. I have done it a million times and I still get nervous. I’m presenting the class the I’ve been with for seven years and I still get anxiety about it. And as I think about no one really pays attention to your PowerPoint except the teacher. Great video
when my teacher is asking me in class
my heart beats faster, I could not open my mouth(even I know the answer),I sweat like crazy and I could not control my own body and thank goodness its summer now but I will try what you said when the school starts
thank you so much! :)
