Whenever anyone achieves anything, he or she is very proud of it.
What may be a simple thing for one person may be an achievement for another.
For me overcoming my glossophobia was a very difficult thing.
I used to be very stage shy and could never speak in front of an audience.
It so happened that once I participated in an environment fair held in my hometown.
We were a team of four students – Mohit, Rohan, Ravi and I.
We had to make a model on pollution.
It was very difficult to collect ideas for the model, but our teacher, Mrs Promilla helped us.
We collected all data from different sources like the internet, library, magazines and so on
We presented all three types of pollution – air, water and noise pollution – on thermocol
In this project we showed the causes, effects and ways to control pollution
We had to speak turn wise on our model.
I remember I was very afraid to speak.
But my other friends gave me the confidence. I felt very good that I was part of that team.
I spoke very well that time.
Getting over my glossophobia was an accomplishment for me.
I felt very good after that.
We won the first prize in this competition.
The judges specially mentioned that the first prize was mainly because of the verbal
explanation of the model.
This fair was covered by the local cable TV and so many people of the neighbourhood
congratulated me the next day.
Our photograph was also there in the local newspaper Jag Baani.
Our school principal also appreciated us
I cannot forget that day.
All four of us were on cloud nine on that day.
So, this was an achievement I was proud of.
