The Ice Breaker

Tell us about your first day at something — your first day of school, first day of work, first day living on your own, first day blogging, first day as a parent, whatever.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us BEGINNING.


I remember the day.  It was the 10th August 2010.  I had joined Bishan Toastmasters Club to improve on my public speaking and leadership skills.  It was going to be a speech about myself.  I spoke about “Looking through the kaleidoscope of my life”.  It was interesting opening up before my club members.   When you speak about yourself it is easier to connect with your audience.  I spoke about my childhood, my education, my career and my move to Singapore from India.

Now it is more than 3 years and I am currently the President of this club.  I enjoy being with this club as we have a very jovial atmosphere.  Our members are also very encouraging and we motivate each other to excel.

In any endeavour in life, I think that taking that first step is the most important.  It is fun to try out different skills in life.  We may find along the way that we are not suited for  a particular field and then we just try another field.  I find that in this manner our learning curve improves.

Joining toastmasters has helped me to network with like-minded people from all over the world with different backgrounds and cultures.  We also learn about each other and in this manner we celebrate our diversity.
