    Default speech writing

    I need to write a two minute speech for tomorrow using all the basic components. But it's a speech where I have to introduce a class member. I got all her information and am prepared for the body of it, but how the hell do you do an attention getter for introducing a person, and thus the closing part?

    Well, at the beginning of the school year me and a friend did an activity like this and he opened up by saying that I was "Canadian-born, that I worshiped Matthew Perry, and that I had the lifetime goal of destroying Mr. X (our teacher)."
    None of this is true. esp not the Canadian part.

    However, it was a great attention grabber, despite the fact that everybody thought I was Canadian. Try interesting facts about her, or something unknown.
    Also another way to grab peoples attention is to use an excited tone of voice.

    I was thinking maybe using some sort of a gameshow voice to introduce her.

    Bwah! I did the fact she wasn't there though, but I had to give it about an imaginary person sitting by me, which was sort of fail.
