Emissary – Hanna Schmidt #ZoomHopper

In 2017 I visited three Toastmasters Clubs in Singapore. Since March 2020, with advent of online meetings, the contact was rekindled resulting in me becoming a member. Facebook and Zoom have given me a hundred and more chances to visit Toastmasters clubs around the globe like, Inter alia Club in Moscow (German and English), Vancouver, Toronto, Dublin, Sydney, Singapore, Minsk in Belarus, and various clubs in Germany. I have definitely left my comfort zone, being asked to participate in Evaluations, General Evaluations, taking up roles as Toastmaster, Table Topics Master and Timer and as a Judge in a Speech Contest. My biggest challenge though was to give a speech in German. I even have mementos from some of my club visits
