Our Persuasive speech “Say “no” – have the courage of your conviction” is one that applies to everyone in some way. This persuasive speech encourages us to have the courage of our own convictions. It says that we should learn to cope with peer pressure so that we won’t go with the flow rather than with our own beliefs. It recommends improving your own self-esteem so that you know your way is right for you whatever the pressure others try to put on you. Our Persuasive speech “Say “No” – have the courage of your conviction” ends with a poem that, hopefully, will encourage your audience that your message is relevant to them in their own lives.
