She made an impressive speech on how everyone can make contribution to make the world better. Our speech evaluators Gaukhar, Ainar and Sultan gave very specific and valuable feedback to the speakers.
Our Table Topics Master Roeedadid a great job presenting everyone the biography of Malcolm X. She asked very interesting questions making the audience to be deep in thought.
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.
