Speaker: TM Martha Trisan
Speech Title: "Passion”
TM Martha believes that one should live in pursue of passion. When she was studying, she started a part time job as a private tutor because she needed money for living. She felt uncertain because she has never taught before, especially after her first student showed her books that was fully in English. It was beyond her expectations but she preserved. She realizes that she liked teaching and was passionate about it. She found satisfaction from hearing about her students’ successes. After graduating, she became an account representative, which required her to give consultations and socializations about tax to public. She enjoys and is passionate about her job which is just like teaching. TM Martha concluded that we should never underestimate ourselves and challenge difficulties because we might find our passion.

Speech Title: "Drafting your Speech”
TM Bena gave tips on how to draft your speech. First, you should be strategic, know your speech’s duration, delivery occasion, audience, and topic.The topic can be about your life, interests, family, education,love life, be about other people’s lives, or a combination of both. You can jot down and create a list of thoughts, ideas, or critics as you go about in your daily life. From there, create a speech purpose first. Afterwards, organize the structure of the speech into opening, body, and conclusion. The opening should tell the audience what you’re going to tell the audience. The body will tell them the main ideas. The conclusion will tell them what you’ve told them. The last tips is to write for the ears and not the eyes. Since they’ll be hearing your speech, you want the audience to understand you right away. After writing and editing your speech, read it aloud and listen to yourself. TM Bena concluded by remind the audience to know what is expected from you when delivering the speech, organize the structure, and write for the ears not the eyes.
