Paul Moore was just 10 years old when his young body shook with its first panic attack. He was reading aloud in class when beads of sweat started to drip on to the pages in front of him. His hands were shaking, his vision blurred and, not being able to see the writing clearly, he stumbled on a word. “The kids around me started laughing, and I looked up and saw everyone staring at me like ‘What is wrong with you?’ ” Paul remembers. “That moment of embarrassment kicked off everything for me.” Over the years, Paul silently fought his secret battle. He couldn’t read aloud again or sit next to a girl without having a sweat attack. Paul now runs a thriving Film and TV acting studio in Melbourne. To find out more about Paul visit www.mooregrace.com
