I joined BIT back in 2014 because I wanted to speak English regularly to improve my oral expression for business. Over the years, I have gained much more than what I initially had expected: Not only am I more fluent when speaking in my second language English and made great friends, but I also gained so much self-confidence that I am now at ease speaking to larger groups, be it in business meetings, in workshops or when meeting friends for socialising – both online and face-to-face. This boost in self-confidence has also helped me to land my dream job in 2017!
By serving on the officers team, I can give back to my fellow Toastmasters what they gave to me, hoping that I can contribute to a great experience for everyone who visits or joins our club.
