Frozen by Stage Fright, She Got a Helping Hug from Her Friend!
Posted by GreaterGoodness
Addressing a large gathering is an unnerving experience for most. Suzy Cloutier, who is developmentally disabled, was speaking at an event organized by STRIVE, a group that helps those with developmental disabilities. The sight of so many people made Suzy nervous and she froze up, struck by a case of stage fright. So one of her friends stepped up to comfort her and gave her a reassuring hug. Encouraged by her friend, Suzy finished her speech to great applause from the audience. Just a little encouragement goes a long way!
