I fully share your feeling and emotion and your inspiring speech made me live once again my journey in ToastMaster.
I have joined ToastMaster a little more than 2 years ago. Initially it was just by chance and I was not even particularly committed, it was a just a different evening twice a month. However after my "ice-breaker" things reall chnaged and I really became motivated. I am now member of 3 clubs and I really feel the difference in my social life and the way I interact with other.
