“Asia Society was founded by Houstonians, the First Lady Barbara Bush and Roy Huffington.
It works to strengthen relationships and promote understanding between the people, leaders and Institutions of the USA and Asia. Every Year Asia Society hosts The Scintillating Tiger Ball, with dancers, singers, drummers, glamorous ladies and gentlemen, a delicious dinner, and a live auction!
In 2011, Vijay, I, and another couple were the Gala Chairs for the Tiger Ball. None of them were willing to be the Speaker. Since I had been in Toastmasters for a few years, I had a speech in my pocket. It was the first time I had given a speech in front of over 500 guests! I loved every moment of it.”
