April 19


About a month ago I joined the Toastmasters club at work. Toastmasters is an international organization to help people learn public speaking skills. This is something I've been wanting to do for a while, but had been putting off because I really hate public speaking. But, for my job, I feel like it's a skill I need to get more comfortable with.

At the first meeting I attended I won the "Table Topics" trophy! Table Topics is a section of each meeting where the moderator presents a topic, sometimes in the form of a game, and each person has to speak on the topic for 1-2 minutes. At the end, we vote on our favorite. I think they may have just been trying to be nice since it was my first meeting, but I still like the trophy!
