My Toastmaster’s journey

2016-08-17 06:00

I WALKED into my first toastmasters meeting 10 years ago. Not long after that I got promoted and this persuaded me to join.

I liked the fact I was nurtured and encouraged, and wasn’t treated different from anyone else due to my blindness.

On my journey I have met many people and have made good, lasting friendships. I have also seen how Toastmasters helps people blossom and flourish.

I soon became a passionate toastmaster, and have seen many lives improved, including mine.

I moved to Amanzimtoti at the end of December 2015 and got involved in starting a club in Toti.

The Amanzimtoti Toastmasters Club was born on 7 April, and we are hoping to charter soon.

We meet every first and third Thursday at Amanzimtoti Methodist Church, 3 Dingwall Road from 7pm to 9pm.

Our next meeting is on 18 August. There is an R30 cover charge to cover tea and refreshments.
