Leadership Lessons

A leader encompasses more than just one’s self; it’s about your team and you.

As a leader, I serve my team and support them to get the job done. I spread the glory if we do well and I (and I alone) take the hit if something goes wrong. I mentor those who I see with potential to lead as was done for me when I was a mentee. I learned that I have to bring my authentic self when working with others, be open minded and willing to embrace change.

Volunteer Experience Outside of Toastmasters

In addition to my time as a member of the Alumni Board of Trustees, I also served on the Boards of Visitors for the School of Management and the Constance A. Murray Women’s Center at NJIT. I am presently a member of the Project Management Institute of NJ (PMI-NJ) where I volunteer in Member Services (we answer member questions and provide registration support for monthly meetings as we return to holding dinner meetings). At my church, I volunteer as a lector, the leader of the Counting Team (we process the donations of the week), a certified catechist and a member of the parish council.

Why I Want to Serve as an
International Director

Toastmasters changed me dramatically. We talk about people who are wallflowers; well, I was the wallpaper! Toastmasters gave me back the voice I used to have when someone else told me what to say, what to do, where to stand, etc. Toastmasters allowed me to become my authentic self and find my path; I want to help others to do the same, one person at a time.

I believe that Toastmasters is moving in the right direction and we can provide meaningful service to both our new and seasoned Toastmasters. I desire to be part of the team that fulfills Toastmasters’ mission and looks forward to determining our future focus for our members, our family.
