Hey guys…guess what.
I don’t have school today.
It is officially finals week, but luckily I only have one final (and a group presentation).
I mentioned on instagram Thursday that I gave my LAST EVER speech in my public speaking class! The speech was a speech of introduction, and I had to “act” as someone named Chris Smith who was introducing the future me! This meant that I had to do some thinking about where I want to be in life in 5 or 10 years. As you can see from this post, I have quite a few options that I am currently looking at.
Heck, I can barely decide what I want to eat for breakfast in the morning- and I’m supposed to decide what to do with my life?
Anyways, I did a lot of thinking and decided that what I think I want to do most is work with cancer patients. Some of what was in the speech was obviously fictional, but I thought I would share it with you.
Hello, my name is Chris Smith, and I am honored to introduce your speaker for the evening, Madison Fischer. Madison asked me to introduce her tonight because we have worked together for several years now and have become good friends in the process. Madison attended Arizona State University and graduated with a degree in Exercise and Wellness (Health Promotion) and a minor in Nutrition and Healthy Living. After graduating, she became certified as a Health Education Specialist and a Personal Trainer. Now, Madison is a Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer through ACSM. She is currently employed at the Banner M.D. Anderson Cancer Center where she works with cancer patients and survivors on a daily basis. Madison has made it her mission to guide and encourage those affected by cancer to live their lives without restraint. She joins us here tonight at the Annual American Cancer Society Convention to discuss with you the benefits of exercise for cancer patients. Please welcome my friend and colleague, Madison Fischer.”
Obviously this is not what I presented word for word, but you get the idea! It was a short speech, but it was kind of fun because it got me thinking about what I want to do and what kind of person I hope to become!
Where do YOU see yourself in 5 or 10 years?
