This podcast is part of the series: If I Were Leader of the Free World
Devin; Jerry Strickland

My podcast is about me being the leader of the free world. The speech was a way of saying the things that are important if I were leader. The speech was originally delivered at Bethel Baptist Church in Fairfield. When i was first invited to deliver the speech, I was very excited, but when i got to the church I got nervous, so I had to take a time out and "breath" for myself then it turned out to be good.
