Top Left: My Ice breaker was a big hit, and the club gave me the “Best Ice Breaker” trophy. It was followed by “The most informed and balanced speech” and the “Best Humorous Speech.” I was excited about speaking and entered the Tall Tales and International Speech Contest. I won First Place in the Club and Area Contest for both speeches. It was an exciting moment!
In 2007, I received The John Radcliff award at the bottom right. It is awarded to a dedicated Toastmaster every year. I love to speak. My favorite manuals were Humorously Speaking, The Entertaining Speaker and Storytelling. I had received 49 shiny gold cups. All the hard work paid off, and in 2014 I received the DTM.
