i agree make it up even if you dont go to the extreme lengths as some posters would lol at least you wouldnt feel as in the spotlight as you would saying real things.

one trick I use when giving a presentation is to think of it as a play and I am just playing a part. For some reason that seems to work. I can go from the personal me who is nervous to the "professional" me needing to play that part well.
For instance if I had to do one about myself, I would write up the "script" as a character in a play and pretend I was just presenting information to the class about that character (take the personalization feelings of it being "me" out). I would try to seperate, in my mind, that I am not saying personal and intimate things about myself (leaving me vulnerable) but about this character.
Hope that helps and while you are doing the play about the "character" really believe this character deserves all the good things you want to say about them. They are good so showcase them in the best light for all to see.
