Ivanka's Speech at the Republican Convention

I was asked by the media to read Trump's daughter speech. Overall, she did a great job on her speech last night. She enjoyed herself, though of course she did just show signs of nervousness like pushing back her hair and light rocking motions. If you watch the tape you will see at the Ricky h before and after she pivoted to aim herself at other parts of the audience, She was very good at planting a a big smile on her face. You may know that I've done research on smiling. Her smile was often planted on meaning that it was at full teeth smile and lingered past the natural moment where your smile relaxes. It makes perfect sense that she would have to plant a smile on her face. She was warm and posed and likeable.
