A Proud Moment

My best friend asked me to speak at her mother’s funeral. That day, I knew why I joined Toastmasters. I was proudly able to say, “Yes, I would be honored to speak.”

At each and every Toastmasters meeting that I attend, I’m inspired, encouraged, and/or entertained by the members and their stories.

Amazing audience: It is an incredible organization with amazing people.

“When I look at my first officer role at the BNSF Toastmasters club and where I am now as District Governor, I’m truly amazed at how much I’ve developed as a leader.”
