Mrs. Edwards is such a wonderful person. As I returned backed stage everyone was saying how I did well, but Mrs. Edwards gave me a little hug and it was comforting. To me that shows that she has such a great heart and cares about the youth.

After the event I stuck around backstage a little while, Michel Martin gave me some great tips on how I can become better at public speaking. This was an exciting Forum for me.
