I used to be an introvert. I used to avoid talking to people since I was not comfortable in doing it. Initially, it was fine, but as soon as I joined college, it started affecting my grades. Whenever I was required to give a presentation in the college, I used to get a very low score as I used to speak very less on the topics given to me. As a result, I decided to acquire the skill of public speaking. Luckily, the course was being taught in the college. I enrolled for the course. It lasted for 2 months, and I was able to get the confidence to speak in front of people. The course enabled me to work on the basic skill of being comfortable with the audience and engaging them in what I had to say. This skill enabled me to get a good score on my course: Marketing 102. Previously, I had not been getting acceptable scores due to my inability to speak in front of the people.
