I know putting another hijabi can seem kind of confusing, but I found all three of them together, and I absolutely loved this speech. Even when she's in an emotional state after her brother was killed, she still stood there in front of everyone. That's something quite hard to do. P- She didn't move around a bunch, but she also didn't shake and was calm. V- Her voice was loud, and given the state she's in, she did not project her voice, only because it was an emotional speech. E- She looked down a bit to keep herself from crying, but she did look around. G- Her gestures were okay; she mostly kept them together as she spoke.
I know it's weird I chose another woman who happened to be wearing a scarf (and I chose her as my other play), but I like to think that when we're talking about public speaking like this, that should never matter. She started it out with a conversation she had on a plane. She gave some kind of funny edge to it, but still managed to keep her face straight. In the first thirty seconds, she actually gave you the explanation of what she was going to talk about and had a fabulous first eight words. She moved around, and she had a smaller audience so she had a better way of handling her eye-contact. P- She moved around and looked up and down at the crowd. V- She could have projected her voice on a few words to emphasize and give more energy to her jokes. E- She looked up and down the crowd, and left and right. Instead of strolling around, though, she could've stopped somewhere and then do it again after a few seconds. G- Her gestures weren't so great, because she moved them every once in a while.
In this video, the woman was almost whispering in some sort of way. She said it so eerily and quietly it was giving me the shivers! However, I do believe that if she projected her voice after her explanation, it would've helped. The whole video was also full of images, so there wasn't much you could see of eye-contact, poise, voice, or gestures. I agree with her on the whole idea of it, because slavery in other countries just makes my heart drop, but if she seemed more passionate about it, I think others would feel the same way she did.
This woman is speaking about war. I liked her story, because after thirty seconds, I felt like listening more, but I also felt like she wasn't compassionate about it. She obviously was, because now that I read her backstory, you can tell that she had gone to war just to understand more about it and help the civilians, but just by watching the video, you can't exactly realize that. She spoke with the same voice. What I did like, however, was that she "stole" an idea, or a story. It's what we're taught to do, and she did just that. The story was remarkable but crazy, but I also think a lot of people would have tuned into this if she had made her voice higher at some points.
I was looking through TED videos, and the title caught my eye. Talk about eight words! This lady has them down. I would play this, because as she starts with a few words on what you do when you see her, she then stated, 'do you see me as a terrorist?' Personally, I would play this due to struggles during my last year of elementary school. There's a bit of text to self, and given the circumstances. She uses PVEG and passes the limits. It's a great motivation for me and young Muslim girls and can also gives people a side of our stories when someone sees us as a terrorist. I actually watched the video full-on, and it got into 9/11. She gave great imagery. P- She walks around the stage, and she doesn't "scratch her leg" or do anything of the sort to distract you. V- She has the mic with her to her advantage, so she is loud enough. However, I would project my voice more if I were her. E- She looks up and strolls down left to right, but I think she could've done better if she looked up and down, too. You can see glimpses of the stage every once in a while, but when you do, you see that the audience stretches bottom up. G- In this case, it's important not to seem too enthusiastic as it is a word-wide problem and making it seem funny would just make it look ridiculous. She was more stately, although I'd like if she used better gestures.
This video is on Joan of Arc, saint of France and a hero who died at the age of nineteen. I didn't exactly like the video, because the facts were just straight up and I did not see and projecting of voice in the first thirty seconds (this is the only kind of PVEG you can find in this video). The voice was also quiet and only there were only pictures going through continuously.
