You have to speak whenever needed and start questioning wherever you feel you were unable to understand. It will increase your confidence as well as personality. People attract the one with confidence. Also, you will get appreciated.
Apart from these points, here are some short points too. You can practice speaking up confidently by standing in front of the mirror. Never look down or anywhere else when some one's talking to you, look into their eyes, this shows your confidence. Even when you are speaking, do the same.
Also, start doing things on your own. Travel alone sometimes, this will make you confident enough to stay independently.
There are many other ways too. But you'll learn them as soon as you explore yourself. You may make your tips get confident when you feel low. All this is possible only when you stay dedicated towards your goal of becoming a confident and free individual.
