What went right? 🥳

Mentorship Workshop: Improv Game Night

  • Mary Ellen opened with a strong sense of a mentor-mentee win-win explanation, and how that is constantly applied at our club. It was encouraging and refreshing to hear that!
  • Members went well above and beyond as they challenged themselves with aiming to reach the yellow time mark! 🙌
  • Apparently, Alondra is really bad at making challenging charades? Mary Ellen and Lucy (guest) guessed pretty much all scenarios. 😆
  • Krishnam opened with funny one-liners, that made the crowd laugh: 😂
    • “Once upon a time in the summer…”
    • “My luck was fading so much that day…”
  • Lisa used amazing uses of the English language when reenacting a scene by being super descriptive!
    • “My hair is a huge affair, but the snakes don’t mind when the hair blow dryer blows them fire!”
  • So much crowd participation and lively engagement! 😇

Toastmasters Meeting

  • Mary Ellen presented an artistically, strong and effectively heartfelt presentation, and ended with a power quote: 🎨
    • “Giving is living!” 
  • From Krishnam’s presentation, we learned that there are over 300 languages in ASL! 😱
    • His presentation included a range of all. Statistics, interactive questions, audience participation, and had us all fascinated with the spiel of fun facts!
    • We all learned how to signal a mosquito, sea turtle, dolphin, caterpillar, gorilla, and champagne! 🐬🥂
    • Most importantly, we left us with the message that, “inclusivity stems from kindness, and kindness is the language for the deaf and blind.” 😊
  • Congrats to Vaishnavi for being crowned the Leader of Time Management! 👑
  • Om gave an outstanding report as the Body Language Monitor! He focused on the five keep components such as:
    • Posture ✅
    • Gestures 🤨
    • Body movements 🕺
    • Facial expressions 😄
    • Eye contact 👀
  • During Diane’s fabulous General Evaluation, she mentioned Alyssa, Om, and Carol were shining stars in their small roles. 🌟
    • Diane was able to connect with Krishnam’s presentation, and it really touched her heart when she was able to learn how to say caterpillar in ASL. 🐛
  • Our members are getting stronger and stronger in Table Topics and in their impromptu skills! 💪
  • Shining quotes from our guest feedback:
    • Lucy: “I am VERY impressed with the talent of this group.” 
    • Omkar: “I had a great experience, and got to learn a lot!” 

What could have been better? 🤓

Mentorship Workshop: Improv Game Night

  • We could possibly think of more challenging charade scenarios. 🤔

Toastmasters Meeting

  • Let’s aim to find more ways on how we can incorporate the use of the Word of the Day more throughout our meetings, but props to Alyssa, Diane, and Alyssa for using it multiple times! 🔠
  • A possible way we can reduce the use of “ums” is to pause and remain silent instead of using a filler word. Many thanks to our Grammarian/Ah-Counter, Carol Stead, for that suggestion! 👏
  • The Toastmaster forgot to call for one-minute evaluations after the second presentation. It was a small hiccup that disturbed the flow of the meeting, but it won’t happen again! 😅
