Zach Wahls is a 19-year-old University of Iowa student who spoke about his family in the Iowa House of Representatives. His short but powerful three-minute speech is the very definition of persuasion. His delivery is natural, passionate, and strong. He uses ethos, pathos, and logos masterfully.
This is a wonderful example of “lighting in a bottle,” which I will discuss at length later this week when I post and examine MLK’s Dream speech. We can all learn something about powerful, persuasive speaking by watching Wahls.
