Mentor/Mentee – Antonieta Manhiça and Xana Maunze

I was amazed by the simplicity and assertiveness of Antonieta’s evaluation skills the first time I saw her. Little did I know she would be going on a mentorship journey with me in the following months. She has always shared her experience and wisdom with me and had a paramount importance in the beginning of my path as a Toastmaster. Having a mentor has allowed me to explore the benefits of Toastmasters’ educational pathways while learning from a more experienced member and creating lifelong relationships. An African proverb wisely teaches us that if we want to go fast we can go alone but if we want to far, we go together – our goals are better achieved with a supporting network and that is not set for debate.
