I trust Toastmasters can help me improve my verbal communications skills, which is something I always wanted to do.
I came from Israel, therefore making a speech in English is a bit of a challenge - no matter that I have been Naturalized thirty yrs ago. The journey at Toastmaster has been challenging and rewarding. I am surprized again and again, how different is the art of speaking from the skill of writing. You learn early on to express yourself in writing, but every speach is like a new act of performance art. It require so much "personality effort" . I am here because it fascinates me.
I am a Research Engineer at Aerospace Corp where I have been employed for 25 years. I have had an opportunity to be active in a few of the extra curricular employee clubs, from Soccer, to Tai Chi thru Dance, and Yoga, and finally Aerovision TMs.
