On March 9th, I presented at the SEPA poster presentation and represented Rollins as a student researcher. I was very nervous in the beginning because I have never done anything like this. I have given presentations but never at a large conference on my own. I spent a couple of hours before hand memorizing what I was going to say because I did not want to leave anything out. When we started presenting the posters the first few people that came up I was a little nervous and stuck with what I had memorized but as time went on I became a lot more comfortable. I was able to not only remember parts of this study but also talk about political theory I had learned in my politics class to address some of their questions. It was really cool to be well educated on what I was presenting and being able to educate others. Also, I was able to meet some professors and students from other schools. They gave me more ideas on how to research political psychology further as well as diversifying the population that the research was on. This presentation experience was amazing and l was definitely out of my comfort zone but it was such a great way to see how to take knowledge out of the classroom. Also I learned a lot about presenting which will be helpful in the classroom as well.
