Good evening to Madam Sathiadevi and my fellow classmates. It is indeed a great pleasure to spend this wonderful evening with all of you today. Today I’ll be talking about a moral value that I have learned from the movie ‘Take the Lead’. The value that I learned is self-confidence when the polite ballroom dance instructor Pierre Dulaine sees a teenager vandalizing a car and on the next day he volunteers to teach dance to students to give value, dignity, trust and teamwork. Eventhough the teenagers who prefer hip-hop or rap, think it wasn’t a great idea but Dulaine catches the students' attention with a tango session and they started practicing ballroom dancing. Dulaine received criticism from parents and teachers who has got no hope on the kids and they believed that the kids need more classes on education and less in dance, but Dulaine explained them what is he up to and the students did not give on their ballroom dancing and they eventually compete in a dance contest but the important thing isn't winning, but making a difference.

A determined and dedicated person finds way in all complexities undaunted by the initial problems and failures he keeps on finding solution to every teaser and one day he achieves his cherished goal. Remember life is a battle,one has to fight it fearlessly with confidence and positive thinking. God helps those who help themselves
In conclusion, confidence is a characteristic that everyone struggles with at one point, but can be achieved by trusting one’s abilities and speaking with others that are supportive. Mark Twain once said, “The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself.” Being comfortable in one’s own skin is the key to achievement and enjoyment in life, so start with some confidence.
