Grub N Gab Toastmasters – June 26 Meeting Recap

Thank you, everyone, for participating in an inspiring meeting “Journey of Life”.   Our Toastmaster, Tien reminded us that we get to decide the direction in life we want to live, thus not to be afraid to tackle uncertainty or fear.  Things might seem tough initially, but a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and if you can’t fly, then run, if you can’t walk run, then walk, if you can’t walk, then crawl, but by all means, keep moving.

Daniel delivered an innovative planning level 2 speech on Your Style of Mentoring.  He shared stories of his parents as his coaches and mentors.  His friends as his social mentors, especially his friend Nate, how he has thrived, overcame hurdles at a young age to self-funded himself to become an Ivy League graduate and successful professional.  An inspiring tale that all of us can learn and emulate.  Thank you, Daniel!

Alex led a brain-storming table topic segment, having Shirin, Sapna, Julie, Nancy, Donavan & Taj (Guests), and Daniel sharing their goals, plans, outcomes, and things that they are thankful for.  Daniel earned the Blue Award Ribbon on his thoughts about living life like there’s no tomorrow!

We also took the opportunity to celebrate and thanks Nancy for all her hard work and dedication leading our Club.  Nancy, we congratulate you and wish you the very best as you will begin your journey, your steps moving to Campbell, California!

In addition, Congratulations to all Grub N Gabbers, through your effort and commitment, we thrive and made it to President Distinguished Club!
