Tara’s First Think Fast Presentation

Spread the love

Well, yesterday was our first show and I thought it went awesome! Set up went smoothly, we were kind of slow but that IMG_0540 will improve:)I felt pretty confident, (well sort of,)I had been going over my story (about my Hero Holiday to Mexico last summer) a lot in the past few days, so I hoped I could pull it off. The nerves were definitely showing when I left my post at the sound box and went backstage. The girls were trying to encourage me but IMG_0528 I was just concentrating on what I had to say. I did have a moment when I forgot what I had to say in a certain part of my story. There is always a spot where I draw a blank, but Kait whispered “cute pig tails, big smiles” and it all came back. I stepped out on stage and I guess it went pretty well, I didn’t blank out and seemed to keep a pretty good flow. I tried not to breath to heavily into the mic when I had to catch my breath and I missed a few parts, but no one in the audience knew that. always have to tell myself that:) The rest of the show went really good, band played awesome and the crowd seemed to enjoy it all.We met Corporate Saturday, the band taking over for team 2 in Nov. and they all seemed like pretty nice guys. crazy and fun, just like our Beauti boys, haha!We were feed a great lunch in the cafeteria, thank you to the ladies putting that together!We had a “Think Global” session at noon, and the turn out was pretty good. Christal and Kait talked a lot about humanitarian issues, poverty, hunger, and slavery.  They are both really great speakers and its always interesting to here them talk.  It was our first think global so it was a bit of a learning experience. There were quite a few students interested in IMG_0511 Hero Holiday as well as the School of Leadership, I think one girl had the forms all signed by the end of the day! Which is pretty cool.  All in all it was a great day and I’m really excited to start touring this Saturday! off to Saskatchewan!
