Sergeant-at-Arms July-December 2016: Barbara Peck

Barbara Peck - George Sutton Toastmasters Club OfficerI remember giving my first speech in Speech Communications class at Community College of Aurora. I was so nervous that after 2 minutes I had to stop talking because I realized I could either speak or breathe, and felt breathing was more important. Since I’ve joined Toastmasters , I was recently able to use my newly acquired speaking skills during a radio interview. Then, several months later, To my surprise, over 200 people were actually laughing during a roast I gave at my husband’s retirement party ! Thank you Toastmasters for helping me find the confidence to speak. Barbara Peck
