What does it mean to find your voice?

I'm preparing a guest post for another blog about how you go about finding your voice--for speakers in general and women in particular.  For some, I know it's more emotional than physical; for others, the vocal issues are paramount; yet others see it as a content issue, focusing on "What do I have to say that will matter to others?"  It's the speaker's quest, so help me understand what you mean when you say you're finding--or have found--your voice.  Leave a comment!

What a great topic! When I think about finding my voice, I go to two things:
- my POV. What is my thesis or perspective about what I'm talking about?
- how imperative or analytical I will be in approaching the topic. Some topics, I can make my point strongly and will state my case boldly. On other topics, I find my assessment more nuanced, and while I have an opinion, I see other sides and want to spend a fair amount of time presenting them.

Hope this helps,
Emily
