My Story as a Speaker: Speech at the University of Hull

How Expressing Herself Changed Venus Angelic

I’m sharing this video by Venus Angelic because she talks about the impact that making YouTube videos (self-expression) has had on her over 7 years. Compared to how she was before, Venus is now able to reach out beyond her inner world to connect with peopleĀ and to be less isolated. One of the more recent lessons she has learned is also to express what she really thinks instead of seeking to please others. Venus really inspires me because despite her difficulties with speech (checking what she says before she speaks) she can speakĀ 5 languages, Including Japanese!
