Winning Trophy Is Good, But If You Fail To Win The Trophy,
Then Win The Lesson.
Division Level Humorous Speech Contest 2012
Seberang Jaya Toastmaster Club Representative: Y.Y. Tan
It is a success that we made it to the division level, but for this year, we failed to make it to the district level.
Sincere Comment from the Contestant:
“ I am very happy and proud to represent Seberang Jaya Toastmaster Club and make it to the division level, even though I failed to make it to the District.
This is my first time participating in a Speech Contest and when I looked back, I realized that I have learnt a lot even though the contest period from Club Level, to Area Level & then to Division Level, was just within a few months.
I still remembered I asked the club member to take video of me when I was giving my speech, and when I looked back the video, I discovered a lot of mistake and imperfection that I have made throughout the whole speech, but, when I compared the “Me” before joining Toastmaster, I am another whole new person who has the courage and confidence to stand in front of crowd, to speak, to inspire and to make people laugh. Hence, I feel so happy even though I fail to win any trophy because for me, “Winning Trophy Is Good, But If You Fail To Win The Trophy, Then Win The Lesson”, and I really have gained a lot of lessons from the participation.
I will learn and participate again in futures, not for the trophy merely, but, for improvement and growth.
Here, I want to take the opportunity to thank you all Seberang Jaya Toastmaster Club members and seniors, for giving me the support, advise and motivation to go further, by giving me useful Speech video to learn, giving me useful advice for my improvement and giving me the best to move on, Thank You Seberang Jaya Toastmaster Club!
Not forgetting, for those who think of joining our Toastmaster Club, I strongly encourage you to do so, contact us and join us.
We are all in the learning process and we welcome everyone.
Let us improve together.”
