      1. I guess she wrote speech by herself, so she knew the text
      2. I also guess she trained it beforehand
      3. She is used to stand in front of an audience
      4. She had a teleprompter (those two mirrors sliding up right before she entered the speakers desk, so she had a safety net
      You can learn all of these skills needed for public speaking - except for the teleprompter - at Toastmasters International. Go, look for a club near you and join a meeting. It will change your live …

      14 minutes of free speech are possible to give, if you train a little. If you are a professional singer/songwriter, speaking about own experiences, 20 minutes are not that big of a deal.

      I pay $12 a month so I wont see KZclip ads but the search engine gives me
      a handful of relevant results and everything else is completely unrelated.
      We used to get page after page of relevant search results but those days are over.

    “ my experience has been that my mistakes Led to the best things in my life and being embarrassed when you mess up is part of the human experience. Getting back up and dusting yourself off and seeing who still wants to hang out with you afterword and laugh about it ; that’s a gift. “
    these words really touched my heart today. Beautiful.
    “ being publicly humiliated over and over again at a young age was excruciatingly painful but it forced me to devalue the ridiculous notion of minute by minute ever fluctuating social relevance likability.”
    This is something everyone needs to learn.
    This is one of the most down to earth speeches I’ve ever heard.

      ​@thezone so other people would work their ass off and have to scrounge up tons of tuition but Taylor gets a degree in something she DIDN'T EVEN STUDY. Its kinda offensive to the people who actually put the work in. No shame for her rising to be a celeb but she can't just be handed a degree for it.

    Thinking about how I was at my lowest point when I discovered Taylor's music. Then everything worsened for both of us and she disappeared but that gave me enough time to get to know her as a person and, without hesitation I became a Swiftie 🥺
    Now it's been almost seven years of following her and being inspired and admired by her talent and humanity. I have grown next to her, with her songs that I've intaken as lessons and catharsis and her brilliance and wisdom that make me feel more and more proud of her every day. Seeing how much she's been through and how she has successfully overcome all obstacles in her way is truly captivating and motivating 💗
    Those who realize Taylor's impact and transcendency, acknowledge this is what she deserves: being recognized, honored, and celebrated for her art and legacy. She's so much more than another female singer: she's a poet, a creative unstoppable force, and a mastermind. She has the gift of transforming all kinds of experiences into magic, into something untouchable ✨
    She's providing guidance and knowledge to everybody out there through her melodies and lyrics that have turned into anthems for so many, spreading messages that bring a renewed faith in love and art and show a slight spark of hope for our chaotic and insensitive world. And the most exciting thing is that the best of her is yet to come! She's paving her way, becoming an actual legend and it's such an honor to witness her rising to the sky 🤩
    She's saved my life and taught me to trust myself and she's one of the brightest lights leading me to a better and healthier place 💞

    don't forget Taylor managed to do the 10 minute song all too well from memory,
    Taylor said. When she was doing the song it lasted nearly 15 minutes,
    to say Taylors a genus is a understatement,
    thank god she didn't give up,
    reputation, lover and folklore might never happened if she gave up
    and evermore, fearless and red both Taylors version might never have happened,
    Taylors family and Joe are the best thing that's happened to her,
    she's also with a label that respects her,
    not like a certain so called company that effectively stole her music.

She's a free spirit, an unimaginably far to catch star but with her like this, it's like talking to her face to face. She is my songstress, I was bewitched by her, and I am so glad it's her I idolize and admire. She means a lot to me, her songs, too, actually. Let the fire of arts burn within you forever, Miss Tay. We will be always here for you, and I will always lit the fire burning in me as I watched your every move. Love you Miss Tay! 💓💓💓💕💕

    Taylor just used part of the script along with her experiences in getting to where she today,
    she thanked the college for giving her the honor and praising the other recipients by saying how their work had enriched everyone,
    she of course thanked her mom and dad and brother for the sarcfices they made so she could from playing coffee houses to being with the graduates today,
    which shows how humble she is
    she also threw in references to of her hits like 22 and welcome to New York
    even to watch it is awe inspiring.
    I'd say there's isn't too many people who could put a speech like that and not stutter or cough

    The most relatable Queen ever..i didn't knw i needed to hear these things.. Sometimes i feel like she is just like us which tbh makes me happy that I'm not alone in those difficult and confused moments..The way she frame her words and sentences with confidence n humor.. it's so beautiful, I can feel so much honesty and authenticity from her words.. I just love her so much as a person, how she is, her mind, her humor, her creativity, her softness, her down to earth nature, literally everything.. N the plus point is she really2 makes the best music too.. What a Queen you are Taylor, no one like you, Your existence makes the world a much better place, your forever fan #swiftiesforever❤️

    you know the moment when you are so grateful for one person bcs she exists at the same time as you and you cry, this is what i am doing right now while staring at her. looking back to my high school years, i always felt inferior but when i found taylor, she taught me abt a lot of things and one of those was confidence. confidence to be yourself & do what want to do with actually overthinking or not thinking everyone's opinion if you do something. let the journey in your own hands and satisfaction. be kind and live your dream bcs nothing is impossible. i love her so much, such an inspiration. taylor, you are a legend!

    When I think of the expression “won the genetic lottery” I think of Taylor first as the epitome of that saying. At age 32, she has lived her life to it’s fullest potential. What does the future hold for her? Anything is possible!

      "Winning the genetic lottery" has nothing to do with anything except her natural good looks. Everything else she's accomplished is purely and completely the result of her own brilliance, resolve and persistence. She's worked so hard for this for so long and we could not be more proud of her! 💙

    She is a Gift. We are "obliged" to listen, hear and be inspired by these kind of people. To grow. No one is omitted. I am starting (yes, starting even in my middleage) to be impressed by these people. Taylor is standing beside Steve Jobs, Arnold Swarzenegger, David Steindl-Rast, Richard Rohr and others i like. I am thinking about someone from my country, but i remember only one person so far who could be compared, Vaclav Havel. They speak directly from the heart to the heart. Amazing. Wonderful. Well and moreover she is so pretty of course!
