I found it a bit easier to write a speech since I was addressing a much bigger audience. The audience I was addressing was New York citizens so writing a speech made it a bit easier to address my audience and speak on the issue we are facing. I would say it wasnt easier than writing a traditional academic essay since I am used to writing traditional essays. What I learned while writing the speech as a writer is to involve the audience. While writing this speech I didn’t know how to introduce my issue or how I wanted to inform my audience. I feel as if I still have much more to improve in since this was my first time writing a speech. The pieces we reviewed from A.O.C helped create my piece since she is a democratic congresswoman for New york city. The skills I developed in other classes have helped my writing but when writing a speech it is a bit difficult because you want to inform your audience on the issues we are facing while also having a solution.
