The article “How to Sell Yourself” mentions the who you truly are from who “you” are as a product. There’s you—imperfect, conflicted, fallible. And then there’s “you”—awesome, confident, superhuman. Think of “you” as a superhero version of yourself.
For the first assignment, you will have the opportunity to introduce “you” to your teacher and peers by creating and presenting a slideshow. Your presentation will be timed and recorded.
Start by making a list of your best qualities, your unique talents and other interesting facts. After brainstorming by yourself, it may be useful to get your friends and family to describe your positive traits. Even though what you present is important, emphasis will be placed on how you present. Dress the way “you” would dress. Talk the way “you” would talk. Role play.
Prepare for the presentation! Review the 18 Tips for Killer Presentations on Lifehack and other tips for presentations.
