I was proud of her. She wasn't a special speech speaker. She didn't do anything but blend with the class.....but I know how hard this class was for her....forcing her to deal with the demons of the past and experiences I'd wager not many in her class have lived, but one never knows. She could have written a "wow" speech, but hers was more text book...hiding those feelings/experiences she doesn't want anyone to know about.
SOOO.....I'm very proud of her and I've told her so.
