Specific Purpose: To inform the audience of the Nelson Mandela’s challenges and the difference he made in many lives.
Central Idea: To discuss how Nelson Mandela overcame his challenges.
* First Main Point –(Attention Getter)
I had a dream about a black American friend who was always bullied by her classmates and she did nothing about it.
* (Reveal your topic)
While watching her being ill-treated, I wondered what it would be like to stand up for oneself or show ...view middle of the document...

Transition: Due to Nelson Mandela’s experiences, it is important to take example and follow in his footsteps.
First Main Point- Could we imagine how Nelson Mandela felt when became such an icon?
* Maybe he felt like a king or boastful
Response: I was not a messiah but an ordinary man who had become a leader because of extraordinary circumstances.
* Doing great things is not about becoming famous or getting people to notice you. Nelson Mandela was subtle about his actions but made a difference being an ordinary man at first and eventually becoming a leader.
Transition: Taking example is not only about being leaders. It comes with being fair in your actions, no matter the demographic of a person. There should be no racism or inequality. We are all one nation.

* (Second Main Point)
I will use some of Nelson Mandela’s challenges and compare it to reality situations.
(Internal Preview of Sub Points) Talk about what peer pressure can do to a person’s decision. Nelson Mandela was only interested in his view and the difference he wanted to make.
* (Sub point) Do you think the time you spent in prison and provocation you encountered made a difference in violence?
* Response: No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

Transition: As the discussion concluded and I remember the way my friend was treated, it only makes me want to stand up for what is right. I can relate to Nelson Mandela because we are both African and I have experience some of his challenges in more minor situations.

After sharing my experience with the audience, I hope that they understand that they should treat others fairly no matter the color of their skin. I hope that Nelson Mandela’s experiences make us proud of our world and ourselves as individuals.
