On Oct. 19th, I attended the CSUSB Toastmasters meeting at CSUSB (California State University, San Bernardino), and I didn’t present a speech, but participated doing multiple roles for the club. Before the meeting started, I spoke with the advisor of the club and she couldn’t believe I completed 10 speeches already, and congratulated me for my accomplishment.
She expressed to me that she wants to continue helping me by giving and showing me tips about becoming a better inspirational speaker. She also said she liked my determination about being focused on a goal and willing to do whatever it takes to get there.
She was there from the beginning of my journey when I joined CSUSB Toastmasters in Oct. 2015, and she seen how far I’ve come in just one year. I greatly appreciate that even after completing 10 speeches, she still wants to help me get better.
Patricia Fripp is a Keynote Speaker and Executive Speech Coach, and the advisor met her before. She expressed that she wants to pass on what she learned about public speaking from Fripp to me.
I’m going to meet with the advisor before our next CSUSB Toastmasters meeting next Wednesday for about an hour and a half. I’m looking forward to pick the advisors’ brain, and see what else I could learn to make my speeches better.
* Since I completed 10 speeches from the Competent Communicator handbook. I will be receiving a certificate award and I’ll be receiving a new handbook for the next level of speeches to complete. The two categories I choose to base my speeches around are storytelling and interpersonal communication.
* On Oct. 18th, I received an e-mail reminder about attending the OMG/West 2016 Cancer Summit for young adults located in Irvine, CA on Oct. 29th. I’m excited to attend this event because it’s a great networking opportunity and I’m going to meet many people like myself.
* Be on the lookout for my blog post about my experience at the OMG/West 2016 Cancer Summit event.
