Congratulations to FDU's Global Leaders Toastmasters Club on becoming chartered chapter of Toastmasters International. The organization is an international public speaking group which develops its members' leadership and communication skills. Toastmasters was first introduced to FDU by Jobin Mojtabavi. Thereafter, under the guidance of the club's officers, Munnaf Prasla, Arlette Hernandez, Thales Santos, Maria Szotyori, Anny Shih, Armendra Kumar, and Alex Mykhailychenko, they collectively planned, recruited and chartered the FDU chapter. The club is a milestone in our students' desire and drive to develop their skills as highly effective professionals in their organizations and communities. With concerted effort, planned meetings, inter-group coachings and fun, the group aims to grow its members into leaders and oratory masters!
