Biggest hurdle you’ve overcome?

My greatest hurdle was getting over my self-consciousness and quiet nature by memorizing and presenting a speech that I wrote, for an audience at the Black History Month Oratory Competition. It didn’t come naturally to me, but with practice, I was able to make my speech energetic and engaging. Though I didn’t win the competition, it was an important milestone for me, and it allowed me to grow as a person and public speaker.
