Global warming

My name is Amy, and today I gave a talk on global warming. I had been wanting to speak about this topic for several years, as it’s something I feel very passionate about. I presented the statistics of various factors such as pollution, rising sea levels etc, and I feel like this helped give credibility to what I was saying. I had butterflies in my stomach as I went in, but as I left the stage I felt invincible! I hope that the presentation made a difference. 

The response was fantastic. Everyone was saying what a good job I did, and some even wanted to do more talks. So, now I have two more talks to give this week and now that I’ve done the first one, it should all be downhill from here (I hope!)
