Drowning

I got drowned once in the last 25 years of my life. It was during the summer vacation after my junior year in high school while we were having our CAT officers training. Actually, we just decided to go the beach after our morning jog.

The beach has a port nearby so the guys decided to jump off near the farthest edge and I joined as well. I can swim but I’m not that really experienced and I don’t even know how to tread that’s why I was hesitant but jumped anyway. When I reached the surface after jumping, I couldn’t swim anymore and I was grasping to breathe. Fortunately, my schoolmate was able to rescue me.

What did I learn from that experience? Never do anything you’re hesitant to do in the first place. You need at least one small bit of confidence before doing anything.

Emcee

How I miss my emcee days in high school. There was never a year that I didn’t host a program in our school. I think it was by being an emcee that my public speaking skills were improved the most. The thrill of making an ad lib and the excitement with panic of knowing how to speak in a manner that would captivate the attention of the audience are just so priceless and memorable.

What I love hosting the most is the Search for Mr. & Ms. Healthy Kindergarten. The kids are just so adorable especially during the Q&A portion, even when I just secretly give them some answers to the question when they’re not speaking for 5 seconds. Hehe.
