Asked a question with over 600 people watching

I was at a Q & A session at a documentary screening. After the screening, there was a chance for the audience to ask the director and producer questions. I raised my hand, but I did not expect to be the first person they would pick! They handed me the mic.

There were over 600 people in the audience and I made my comments and asked my question. I was really nervous and my voice was kind of shaky. There were a few awkward moments when I got self-conscious but I'm trying to look at the positives and I think I got most of my points across and I asked the question I wanted to ask. Things don't have to be perfect. People got a new perspective from me and I think I made a valuable contribution to the discussion.

Yay me!

Fantastic job. You know there were other people there who were too afraid to speak up.
