7. Obstacles

7.1. I hope there aren't any hurdles in from my audience but I am aware that there could be.

7.1.1. I have to keep in mind that I will be talking to men about inspiring women in the industry. Fullscreen Media does, however, strongly believe in women creators, however I still need to make sure that I am not being "too pushy" on the subject by effectively communicating that it is something that I directly feel a calling to do. I also need to not come off as degrading or  aggressive towards men in the industry. (Avoid the "it's all your fault" feeling)

7.1.2. My age and lack of job experience may also create some difficulty. I will focus on showcasing what I have done that was exceptional, like side projects and community involvement

7.1.3. There may also be some presentation difficulties. I am not the best public speaker. However, I do believe that if I rehearse this properly everything should go okay. I must also be prepared to still give a presentation even if technology fails me. Therefore, memorization or even note cards with bare slide titles are huge in ensuring success, no matter what.

8. Biggest Difficulty

8.1. One of the hardest parts of this presentation will actually be giving it. I have a tendency to get really nervous which causes me to talk really fast and stumble over my words. To a future employer this may look like I am not a good leader or contributor.

8.2. I will also have an issue with turning this presentation into something engaging and story-like while still keeping it to a professional level. I'm really good at turning something into a story but I like it to be exaggerated and funny. Finding a good story balance is something I will have to spend some time working on.
