Comments from our last PSBPS class:
My learning has been quite remarkable I must admit. My peers have noticed that I am more opinionated, but it all boils down to confidence. Am working on my word-bank as I realize it also increases fluency. Am also working on gestures, facial expressions and basically managing the the speech by structure and engaging the audience. My speech at the Rotary Club went well. I felt appreciated as I was rewarded with a Certificate by the Rotarians. Thank you so much Caroline. -Simon Wekesa, Advocate
