    Hi, so I've been shortlisted for Head Girl and have been told to make a speech for assembly. However, I'm finding it difficult to being my speech; I've heard that your speech has to be funny and memorable so it catches the students' attention but the problem here is that I'm genuinely not a funny person. In fact I'm usually very shy and came out of my shell for this role of head girl as I recognised my passion and determination to bring change into my school.

    Does anyone have any advice on how I can make a really good and outstanding speech? That would be really helpful, thanks!

    Don't try to be funny if you're not, it will look really unnatural and awkward. Any laughs should happen naturally, but there is nothing to worry about if it doesn't.

    Why not make the point that you are stepping outside of your comfort zone because you really want to make a difference, and you want to create opportunities to enable other students to also push themselves and achieve more?*

    If your school is anything like mine, just being yourself catches the teachers eye - after all the teachers and principal will determine who becomes Head Girl in the end! Good luck, I am also applying for Head Girl at the moment!
