This week in ISM, I gave my dress rehearsal speech for Final Presentation Night and began rearranging my display board for FPN. Now that my product is finished, I am focusing on getting it ready to present to my friends and family! I was pleased with my performance in my dress rehearsal speech, as I sounded confident and prepared. The only thing that needed improvement was my introduction and conclusion, which I will work on memorizing before May 24th rolls around. My display board will take a bit more work, as I need to now make my product the center of attention instead of my original work; there will be lots of ripping off and re-gluing, but it will be worth it!

This upcoming week, I will have to plan one last meeting with Leah to do a final editing/proofreading of my PR plan, get my Mentor Evaluation of Product completed, and wrap up our year together. I value her opinion of my work greatly, so I want to apply any and all changes she may suggest before I finalize it for presentation. It will definitely be bittersweet; I have learned so much from her, and I have had so much fun in the process! I cannot believe that my ISM journey is coming to a close, but I am excited to move into the next chapter of my life and apply all of the amazing lessons ISM has taught me!
