When you get the mic, say your name, where you are from, and what you’re all about. Introduce yourself to your crew or your audience. When you’re done introducing yourself, try introducing someone else. Keep it positive — it’s a friendly introduction, not a battle!

This is a good technique to get you started when you don’t have much to say. Everybody is good at talking about themselves. People might want to know a bit about you too. Some MCs only introduce themselves, over and over. It’s a good practice to have in your repertoire, but we hope you’ll try out some new ideas too!
