second semester SMart goal
My Smart Goal for this semester is to grow in my confidence with public speaking. I have struggled with public speaking and speaking to people in general in the past because I have always been very shy and, to be honest, had low self esteem. I want to grow in this skill because it is realistic that in later years of my life and in future careers I will need to be able to public speak confidently. Often times when I have the chance to public speak I do not take it, although it would help me immensely. I am trying my best to be more confident so I can do this. I hope to achieve this goal by the end of my 9th grade semester, but I plan on working on it throughout my high school years and beyond.
