ES BEIGAO CORNER How did you feel about being an emcee? Were you nervous? “I think that I enjoyed it very much, because I think it was better than when I did it in first grade. When I was the emcee in first grade, we needed to memorize all the words. But in fourth grade, we could also look at the words we needed to say, and also talk on our own. I’ve had a lot of chances to be an emcee for different things, so don’t really feel nervous at all now!” “I was kind of nervous the whole time. Before we went on the stage my hands were full of sweat and were that way all the way through the assembly! When I said that I was nervous, the teachers and my friends encouraged me not to think too much. By the middle of the assembly, I felt a lot better. I think being an emcee was a fantastic experience for everyone.” Charissa Wang, Grade 4 Joe Zhou, Grade 4 Were you proud of it and why? “I was proud about the speech because it was my first time being an emcee and I felt I was quite good at it. I also enjoyed talking in front of hundreds of people and telling them the main things we are going to do for the month. Another reason is that it also seems like I was an important person in the school because when I was talking everyone was super quiet. So I enjoyed it very much!” Would you do it again? “Yes, maybe I would. It did take a lot of time to practice in the morning, and the dress rehearsal felt a little strange because there was no audience. But I did have fun with the experience!
