Back-to-back YLPs

Today saw the completion of the Youth Leadership Program (YLP) organized by MAS Cempaka Toastmasters Club. We had nineteen students from SMK Aminuddin Baki, Kuala Lumpur, ranging from 13 to 16 year olds. On Friday, another YLP also just completed, and also organized by MAS Toastmasters Clubs. The youths were twenty-one teens. I played active roles as facilitators in both YLPs.

The first YLP had me presenting on Table Topics. I was charged with facilitating a group of eight students. And I was tearfully proud when 4 of the students from this group competed in the finals of the speech contest. And from the four (out of a total of 6 finalists), two of them were placed, i.e. first runner-up and second-runner up. In the second YLP, I did the Invocation as well as delivered my “Ice breaker” speech, and in the speech contest, I was the Contest Chair.

It was an awesome experience!
