A form of storytelling, speech has been a major part of my life since high school. As a journalist, I have used speeches to share stories with larger audiences. Here are some of the speeches I have written and given for communities.

KYMN 95.1 FM interview

I had the opportunity to reflect upon my communications internship with the City of Northfield on KYMN. While this isn’t my standard way of giving speeches, this highlights my interview approach and speaking style.

My testimony

While interning at Good Shepherd, I had the opportunity to share my testimony, or “faith footprint.” My testimony is the most personal speech I have given. The eight-minute video highlights faith’s role in my life.

Something small — something special

My senior year of high school, I was selected by my classmates to give one of Cannon Falls High Schools’ commencement addresses. From the front of the high school’s parking lot, I emphasized how the small things are often the most special.
