Getting up there on stage in front of the whole world was no easy feat, says Caitlyn Jenner

Caitlyn Jenner was handed over Arthur Ashe Courage Award at ESPY past Wednesday. She gave a powerful, emotional speech after accepting the award and received a standing ovation from some of biggest personalities of the sporting world after leaving the stage.

That looked just perfect – but, it was not as simple as it seemed. Jenner was nervous to become the center of attention as she was making her first official public appearance after her transition. She blogged in her website about her biggest fear in her life and how did she conquered it at ESPY.

“As a dyslexic kid, my biggest fear in life was to go in front of the class and read because I just wasn’t very good at it – and that stays with you through your whole life. I’m better off getting up there knowing what I’m going to say and doing it. But at the ESPYs, I really had to stick to the prompter because I only had a certain number of minutes to make it right, to get my points across. I practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced to make sure I’d nail it.”

Reading the speech off the teleprompter was a huge thing for Caitlyn Jenner but she was totally focused on the device while delivering the speech.

"The toughest part in the speech was my kids," Jenner writes. "It was hard to look over there and see all of my children." Finally, she got off the stage, luckily without tripping and had a party with family and friends upstairs. She called that moment “a relief because it was over."

Jenner was pretty much pleased the way she looked at the award ceremony but was not happy with her voice.

“I felt I looked great and that the gown looked fabulous, I still have a voice issue. It’s not quite right compared to my feminine appearance," she confessed. "That bothers me a bit. However, I hope that people don’t listen to the pitch of my voice, but listen to what I have to say. That’s important to me.”

Caitlyn Jenner was aiming to explain transgender issues to the people and she hoped she had achieved it at the ESPY.
