When was the last time you did something or experienced something for the first time?
“Good evening Fellow Toastmasters and our dear guest. Here’s to another session in our Toastmasters Club.
To be your Toastmaster of the Evening (TME) is actually not the original plan. However, my Toastmasters experience thus far has showed me that whether we create plans or not, there will always be circumstances that bring us to where we are now. Joining Toastmasters was the first time I ever joined a club outside of school and the first club I joined that aims to develop one’s communication and leadership skills. I am fairly new as I became a member just last January, with this as my fifth session and in fact, I haven’t delivered my BSP No. 1 yet.
During my very first meeting, I was already given a role, again unplanned, to be the Ah-Counter, in lieu of my colleague who was a speaker that evening. After that, I got to take on the role of being a Grammarian, Table Topics Masters, and now, your TME. With just five sessions, being in this club has already given me a lot of firsts.
