    A Very Nervous Child

    I look back at my school reports when I was at boarding school in 1988.
    I was getting good marks, but I was perceived as a “very nervous child”.
    I wasn’t developing as a confident communicator – at all.

    When I was at school, I often felt anxious. I would bite my nails and
    avoid looking people in the eye. I hated being put on the spot and my
    stomach would feel like a washing machine every time I was asked a
    question. I generally felt awkward talking to people.

    My way of coping with this was to sit at the back of the classroom,
    hide my face and pretend I was invisible.
    My tactic seemed to work well. I became invisible at school, but I
    found it frustrating hiding myself away because I knew that I could be
    bold; I knew I had a much bigger personality outside the classroom.

    Find out how I turned this around and what you can do about it! ‘Speak Up and Be Heard’ is out in December 2018.
