An ice-breaker speech for my speech class

My life began in a small town far from here. Ever since I was a little girl, I've always wanted to be someone who knows where she's headed. Someone with a mission. I spent my childhood playing inside our house pretending to be a college student. And now here I am, standing in front of you today as a college student with a mission in life. It's amazing how time flies.

I would describe myself as a soft spoken and trustworthy person. I like small crowds and I enjoy hanging out in places that is not too loud. I like watching movies and reading books with light-hearted themes rather than dramatic ones. On my spare time it's either I'm browsing the net or doing something unproductive with my life. My parents raised me not to make life complicated. They taught to be contented in what I have, to admit mistakes, to respect other people, to work hard and most importantly to serve God.

You can tell a story from your life that symbolizes who you are. Also, I would take out the part about doing unproductive things. That will tell the teacher that you are not willing to work hard and make an effort in their class (even if you are not planning on making an effort). You'd be surprised how far hard work will take you. I say make your life complicated. God will never give you more than you can handle. Perseverance builds character and will help you in a future job some day. Good luck in speech class

I can help you with your speech.

First, I would like to give you a correction. "My life began in a small town not too far from here." Here is a suggestion for the second sentence: "When I was a little girl, I always wanted to be someone who knows where she's headed in life."

Here are a few more adjustments you can make to these sentences: " I like small crowds and I enjoy hanging out in places that are not too loud." "In my spare time I'm either browsing the internet or doing something unproductive with my life." The end of the paragraph, just change the first part of the sentence to: "They taught me to be contented with what I have.."

Here are some suggestions to help you add more material:
1) What is your small town like in comparison with the campus?
2) What made you choose that particular school to attend?
3) How did you feel when you arrived on campus?
4) Was there a fun activity or something exciting that happened on campus your first week? (i.e. the university I attended had welcome week and we were able to get to know our classmates by participating in activities with them)

5) What is your major?
6) What are your future goals?

These are just some questions to think about and help you to brainstorm about what you should write next.
