  why did you study communication?  
 

Originally I was drawn to communication merely because I was interested in broadcasting, I soon realized how much I could grow from studying this field. I was very shy, lacking social skills and was not always able to communicate effectively. Communication is still a struggle for me at times, but at least my face does not turn beet red during speeches anymore.

  why is your chapter important?  
 

Speech is a requirement for every major [at Millersville University], so it is important to show students how they can benefit from taking a public speaking course. The Introduction also establishes a basis for communication and describes what is necessary for speakers to communicate effectively.

  if you learned you would die in a few days, what regrets would you have?
 

That I "worked myself to death" and didn't spend enough time enjoying life.

  who do you admire most and why?
 

My grandmother-in-law. She is a beacon of joy, can make anyone feel at home, and is always dressed to the nines.

  what is a fashion trend that you used to wear that you would now be embarassed to wear?
 

As a kid, I used to put paperclips in my mouth to make it look like I had braces. It DOES all come back around because now fake braces are stylish among kids in Southeast Asia.
