But back to yesterday night. It wasn't even that important a presentation in the grand scheme of things, but 5 important people had been invited to judge and I was a mess. My part was over in the first half hour, I was one of eight to speak. After the 3 hour session, I was packing up to leave when Someone came to speak to me. A very very important Someone, the Most important Someone out of the mentioned panel of 5. He complimented my style, the way I carried myself and put forth my ideas with clarity. He admired the fact that I could think extremely well on my feet when taking questions. A talent that usually takes alot of time and experience to cultivate, he said.
I nodded dumbly, eyes glazed over. He was a head honcho. I was an insignificant Law student. It was the absolute pinnacle of my academic life!Images POP and sonia sieff
