Storytelling — December 2 Meeting Recap

01 Jackie Dec 2

What would your life look like as a movie?

Would it be boring and mundane, or filled with adventure? Our Toastmaster Jackie began our storytelling-themed meeting with a challenge: think of your life as movie, then make it the best movie it can be.

Maxim continued the theme with his speech on motivation — the first step in telling your story — before James motivated us to think before acting on our impulses (unlike Mr. Wang from his folktale). Finally, guest storyteller Marilyn left us wanting more with her vivid “Unfinished Tale”, a story years in the making.

Congrats to Wes, our first time GE, as well as Maria, Cristina, and Arash, who all stepped up with last-minute roles. Our guest Alex, of course, won Table Topics. The End!
