(Sample 2): Introduction of a Topic – ‘Fibroids’
|Have you ever noticed how some things are such a part of life but we don’t talk about them in normal every day conversation. Well… (say it straight forward) fibroids are one of those ‘some’ things. If you know what fibroids are and more importantly, if you know the signs and symptoms, you will possibly be able to save a life. This is because some symptoms of life-threatening conditions arise from fibroids. Understanding the signs and symptoms of fibroids definitely puts you in a better position to decide whether you need to see a doctor or if you need to visit the emergency room. If it is not life-threatening; rather lifestyle threatening, then this discussion could show you the options available.|
You can always bring variations according to the situation and the topic. If you have to give someone else’s introduction, you would need to research on that person for a bit, and start off with his or her achievements or career highlights. All the Best!
