May 4, 2018 UPS Meeting - First Time as Club Mentor - 3rd

"Fiesta" is the theme for today's meeting at the UPS Alabang TMC. The club members even hang "banderitas" (flaglets) to create the atmosphere. I was looking for the "lechon" though. Haha.

As shown in the photo above, Anne and I held up the Toastmaster magazine where we were both featured in the Meet My Mentor column.

In today's meeting, I was a prepared speech (for 2 speakers) and table topics evaluator. They had a full line-up of 6 speakers. If the energy of the club today was any indication (many volunteers), there would be full line-ups in the meetings to come.

Although I asked for a slot in today's meeting for my Connect with Storytelling speech, none was available. But that's okay. They already had a full list of excited speakers - which is a good thing! Instead, I'll be looking to deliver my speech in the May 5, 2018 BFComm Toastmasters meeting.

Anne officially announced to the group, that I will be her partner as club mentor, even if it hasn't been reflected yet in TI's records. It will be my first time to be a Club Mentor. I'm hoping to complete the mentorship and apply it towards my ALS norm.

And that's... a wrap!
