Am I Allowed to Make a Statement at the Beginning of a Deposition?

I am being sued , and cannot afford an attorney to represent me, but must appear at a deposition that the Plaintiff has noticed. As a defendant and deponent, am I allowed to make a statement at the beginning of the deposition? I've been deposed before, and I seem to recall my lawyer at that time telling me that I could make a statement after I was sworn in, but before the questioning began. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
