In December, I joined Toastmasters International. It’s an organization which helps to develop public speaking skills. I gave my Ice Breaker speech (the first speak) when I was inducted into the group. The first person to do that. I nailed that speech! My next speech is in June. They gave me two mentors, so I really feel confident.

Im joining Toastmasters! I’ve been putting off this goal for years. My daughter will be taking Speech next semester, so we’re joining together.
This is one fear that I haven’t conquered. I can speak to a group of children with no problem, but a group of my peers is another story. I can have everything planned that I want to say, then stand before the audience and sound like an idiot. Maybe Toastmasters will help me learn to speak with confidence. They have a lot of tools to help, so wish me luck.
