Pitch Day was a blast! I had so much fun and really enjoyed the experience on Friday January 16th. As the stampede of parents and administrators came, I was pretty anxious and flustered. My main fear was that I would forget the beginning, and not remembering what I was intending to say. Before our audience walked in, I took a deep breath and did a little shake. I told myself that I could do it and I would do a great. Also my one major concern was waiting for having no on come up and seem interested in what I had to say on being a veterinarian. However, that was far away from the sort. All of the parents seemed intrigued by my project and said my poster really stood out.

Throughout the entire day I got to talk to a lot of parents and administrators. I did not mess up like I thought I would. I always had them leave with an understanding of my passion and my goals towards future. At the beginning it was a little slow and watching the clock made me scared. My first talk was with an administrator and I thought I would be scared. Once I started talking about my passion it just flowed through me. Definitely practicing in front of the class got out the nervous feelings I had. I learned that it was not a scary to present in front of administrators and guardians when you know what your talking about, and have practiced.
I definitely enjoyed this 20 time experience. It made me learn people skills, engaging the audience, and even with documenting the process on this blog. In the beginning of 20 time, I did not like the fact of doing something without any guidelines. Throughout the process I understood why there was no guidelines, and that was for our own benefit. Overall, this was a great and fun experience for me and I hope the school continues this in the future Honors English classes.
