    I'm in the photography society in my uni and we have a massive sporting event on Wednesday. I 've somehow ended up reporting for the school paper and giving coverage for some of the sporting events. It's really SCARY AND DAUNTING as i have social phobia and some anxiety and i've never been to a stadium before. Big crowds scare me and we'll have to phone in and give some commentary for the radio. What the **** am i supposed to do? I was under the impression that we just had to take pictures of the various sporting events, not report for it. I don't wanna quit because its a great opportunity and would look great on my CV but at the smae time its ****ing scary.
    What should i do?
    P.S. there's also this really fir girl i saw there but i dont know what to say or how to talk to her. One of the leaders talked to her and she seemed to really enjoy it

    Well when they ask you about it in a job interview you can say how you conquered it. Seems like you have a confidence problem. Can only try your bbest.

    Okay, as someone who suffers from anxiety, here are a few tips
    -practice breathing exercises. These help you keep calm and relaxed. Google them.
    -don't eat anything heavy the night before. But similarly make sure you have some breakfast on the day.
    - I hate big crowds also, as I feel trapped and claustrophobic. But if I have to go somewhere like that, then I sit down and write all the possible ways I can get out. So I google a map of the place, all the exits. If I had any problems, I can go to security and they will help me. If I feel really ill, there will be first aiders on stand by.
    - immerse yourself in the reason you are there. So go over all your photography equipment/techniques etc.
    -when you have to give the report, remember it's over the radio so noone can see you, just hear you.
    - if you really hate it and don't feel well, you can pay yourself on the back that you tried to go and gave it your best effort, and Noone is gonna get mad at someone for being ill.
