Talk about being out of my comfort zone.
After about five takes – and the cheers from some of the people attending the event – I finally managed to complete my sentence in front of the camera.
I’m uncomfortable with being on camera. I like taking videos and photos of other people but I try to keep out of the screen as much as possible (for a good reason). This time, there was no escaping the task. I did think of asking for another task but then a colleague’s remark made more sense. After all, didn’t I promise myself that I’d be welcome opportunities to be out of my comfort zone every once in a while? (Darn. What was I thinking?!) But a promise’s a promise.
