The 65-year-old former Olympian opened up about her nerves before hitting the stage to accept the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. "As a dyslexic kid, my biggest fear in life was to go in front of the class and read because I just wasn't very good at it -- and that stays with you through your whole life. I'm better off getting up there knowing what I'm going to say and doing it. But at the ESPYS, I really had to stick to the prompter because I only had a certain number of minutes to make it right, to get my points across. I practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced to make sure I'd nail it."
Another big issue that Caitlyn worried about was how people would perceive her voice. "While I felt like I looked great and that the gown looked fabulous, I still have a voice issue. It's not quite right compared to my feminine appearance. That bothers me a little bit. However, I hope that people don’t listen to the pitch of my voice, but listen to what I have to say. That's important to me."
Caitlyn's fashion is certainly a hit. She was just named one of the best-dressed women of the week by Vogue for her elegant look in a white Atelier Versace silk gown at the ESPYs, designed by Donatella Versace.
