Most of the guests and members participated actively during the Table Topics session. Gaukhar became the best Table Topics Speaker. She answered well to the question about what she would do if there was a lot of free time. Her response was learning to play the violin on her maternal leave. In Gaukhar’s mind it would be great to play classic music when she has a baby.
