A Funny Pair
Ebony Toasmasters participants for the Humorous Speech and the Table Topics contests, Bex Williams and Jessica Opoku had stellar performances at the Area contest. Their first contest experience ended with first places across the board for Ebony.
Bex presented a comical tale about a flight, grandmother’s advice and a romantic encouter. He had the crowd following his every move throughout the duration of his speech and garnered smiles and laughters from the first row to the back.
Jessica was quick on her feet with a witty answer to the table topic presented to her. She showed poise and confidence in explaining her preferred choice between chocolate and marshmallow. In answering, Jessica managed to intertwine personal anecotes which the audience found enjoyable.
With these two first places, Ebony Toastmasters capped an incredible year at the area level, where the club earned first place in all four contests with four different speakers. But let’s hope the adventure doesn’t just end here for these two. We will follow and support them throughout their respective contests.
