Public speaking is hard. Standing up to say your opinion in front of others at the risk of ridicule, judgement, and knowing that the audience holds your acceptance solely in their hands. Worrying "Am I qualified to speak about this topic? Are others more qualified? What if I make a mistake?" are all potential deterrents that make you want to hide away and keep your thoughts to yourself. But what if you have something great to say to the world? Guess there's only one way to find out.
