I recently enrolled on Toastmasters International. If you are already picturing me graciously rotating a glass of red wine, I am afraid I’m going to burst your bubble. Toastmasters International is a network of clubs that provides a well organised and friendly environment to practice public speaking and improve communication and leadership skills.
I received my first birthday present up in the sky this year. The author of the gift was my dear friend Nina, with whom I was travelling from Amsterdam to Lucca, Italy, to celebrate. We were probably flying over Germany or France when she handed me a funny patterned bag and wished me happy birthday.
