PostSubject: I need help preparing topics for my presentation   25th March 2014, 5:39 pm

Monday, March 31st I will be presenting a speech open to my University, but mostly aimed toward Asia Club and students with an Asian Studies Concentration. I will be speaking about my experience while living in Taiwan and how it effected me as an individual. Thursday and Friday I will be using most of my time off from work to prepare a power point, and although I have some ideas on what I should speak about, I want to hear what YOU would personally be interested in hearing if you were to attend. This will allow me to add topics and make my presentation longer. (20 minutes to a half hour) 

Please note that I have already asked the members in charge of my event about what they want to hear. "We want the students to get a glimpse of Asian Culture through a student who was exposed to it first hand)



In no particular order, here is what I have planned already. I will speak about these topics in greater detail upon presenting:

  • How to apply for the Huayu Enrichment Scholarship I was awarded & what is needed (the last day of enrollment is actually the same day as my speech, so it is just something for students to keep on the back burner for next year.) 
  • Philosophy (western vs east)
  • Culture 
  • Food 
  • Religion
  • Weather & Differences (Ex. People cover up more in the sun to avoid skin cancer whereas a lot of us in the west expose skin.)
  • School System
  • Ghost Month (note: Not the official title)

I'd want to hear about the usual architecture and natural beauty of Taiwan. Are there any interesting landmarks?

This might be included in the school system part, but you should definitely have a topic (probably toward the end) about what benefits you gained from this experience. What did you do, what did you learn, and how will this experience help you succeed in life? Why should others want to have a similar experience?

I'd be interested in the kind of stores they have there! Like clothes stores, gaming stores, grocery stores, etc. I'd be interesting to know about the different kinda of things that you can buy there that you can't find in America!

Your presentation sounds awesome!!!! You'll do amazing =]

Thank you everyone for your help and input! My presentation lasted almost 50 minutes, with just enough time for questions and comments within the hour.


Fun Fact: The day of the presentation, the gentleman who hands out the scholarships saw on the University of Scranton's Asia Club's Facebook page about my presentation and emailed the president of the club asking for photos of my presentation to use to send to Taiwan and use for "Local Media" as advertisement of the scholarship. He also expressed he was thrilled I was taking my own time to inform the University I graduated from of the Huayu Enrichment Scholarship that was available to study in Taiwan if a person met qualifications.
