My journey in Doha Toastmasters club started in 2018 from 475th Club meeting as a guest. Since then, I am attending the club meetings regularly and never missed any club meeting. Each meeting was a learning experience for me. I learnt so many skills by observing the co-members & leaders in the club.
I started my leadership journey as a Sergeant at Arms of the club then VP Education in the past year. Simultaneously I was active in Area and Division Councils. Concurrently working on various positions gave me an exposure to improve my leadership skills. In my Toastmasters Journey. I made many good friends who are always there to support me.
