January 22 Impromptu Writing

On the stage, there is a black woman, who is wearing a colorful sleeveless t-shirt and a blue and pink scarf on the head. She is facing the audience and having a speech. Her arms are opening and her hands are doing some gestures. The audiences under the stage are looking at her. However, since they are not the focus of the photo, their faces and expressions are not shown.

It is a special day in my life.  A college invited me to have a speech for them to telling their students about my story. It was my first time to stand in front of a huge amount of people. I was very nervous, but I was more excited. I picked my favorite clothes and scarf, they give me courage and make me feel confident. I never thought that I would tell others about my story one day, but when I stood on the stage I felt being supported. My arms have been burned during the war. However, I was proud of it because it was the proof of my experience.
