Arriving in Montreal and Canada for the first time, in April 2018, I did not have any friends back then. That’s when I decided to join the CN Collaborators Toastmasters Club. Since that time, being at the club has tremendously helped me to overcome my fear of public speaking. The friendly and supportive environment that do prevails at the club makes the weekly meetings fun and enjoyable. Initially, I came to the club only thinking about successfully delivering a speech in front of an audience, but there is so much more to gain!
