Here are three key moments from her speech.

1. She called herself out for her inexperience speaking before large crowds. "I’ve given a few speeches in front of classrooms of students, but never in an arena with more than 10 million people watching," she said.

2. She spoke about her father as a mentor. "He draws out the talent and drive in people so they can achieve their full potential," she said. "That's a great quality to have in a father, and better yet the president of the United States."

3. She called her father a "natural-born encourager." She referred to a time when, after a friend died, her father was the first person to call her. She also called him a man with "natural charm and no facade."
