She must feel good about her thesis and having proud supportive parents!

She's never had any unusual fear of public speaking, but as with anyone, it leaves her nervous. At least so she told me, although she sure didn't seem nervous. She seemed engaged and almost like talking about the subject of her thesis was fun.

That's really cool!  Has Tricia always been inclined towards public speaking or do you know if she had a fear of it when younger?  I heard recently that a significant portion of the public would rather die than have to speak in front of a large audience.  I've known people who had an intense fear but worked through it and became great speakers or performers.

Vicki and I just sat in by Zoom on Tricia defending her university senior thesis. Holy, holy wow am I proud. So damn smart and I had no idea how good she is at public speaking!!

And I just thought she was great at hiking the PCT.

Among a few comments I texted to Tricia while we were waiting for the panel to pass her or not: "Obviously, I've been around many many lawyers over many many years. Lawyers are trained to speak in public. Your presentation and your ability to speak in public are better than the large majority of lawyers I've been around. Just unbelievable to hear and watch what I just saw.”

I am literally in shock at how good this was.

Oh, and they just passed her... duh.
