4-H provided a great training ground for public speaking

As the youngest of eight children growing up on a dairy farm in rural Ohio, I was an active 4-H member for nine years. Participating at the Ohio State Fair was a goal that I both desired and attained––twice.

As a high school sophomore, I presented a solo demonstration entitled “A Desert Affair” and was awarded Best in Show. The following year I was determined to make a repeat performance: this time with my twin sister. Dressed as Santa’s Elves, we presented a team demonstration that engaged the audience and impressed the judges. My reward was taking home another coveted clock trophy.

Life lesson learned: Know and engage your audience
