Kai’s presentation hit mastery not by strictly following the criteria, but by truly presenting real information about him, and showing how Mpx made his life better. Although unnecessary, the background that he gave about himself set the stage perfectly for a shocking exposé on how after Mpx, he’s changed as a learner. He addressed how at times he had problems, at times he had doubts, yet he was able to work through it and become the “new and improved Kai wilding.” Being a theater kid, Kai had a very good grasp of speech and could enrapture an audience through his tones and expressions. This showed mastery in most all aspects, and ultimately made his case. His slides were phenomenal and enhanced the presentation to a very high degree. Overall, Kai’s presentation was near perfect; the only thing I would change in it would be if he continued his beginning theme throughout, and didn’t bluntly state the artifacts. Mine on the other hand was delivered shakily, and scripted. I thought my content and words were quite good, but the way that I presented, coupled with the fact my script’s size was obtrusive, diminished the impact of my speech. Even though my presentation may not have been the caliber that I wanted it to be at, I am still proud of it. To me, it wasn’t about the grade: mastery or developing, this was my final testament to Mpx, and I wanted to show how much of a difference it made in my life. In truth, I wanted a good grade, I admit it; but I know now what little value that letter holds. Mpx taught me to pursue something because I love it, not because someone tells me to. So in conclusion, my POL was average, but not my time in Mpx and if I ever hope to succeed, Mpx has already shown me the way.
