The last time HELP UC came this far was during President John Lee's triumphant march to the District Evaluation contest. And it was his presence, guidance and coaching that inspired our 2 representatives this time - Gajendran for Table Topics and Jason Lim for International Speech.
Well, Jason seems to be focusing, Gajen might be wondering whether he shaved properly or not. Anyway, there was a good turnout and the crowd was ready for quality speeches and table topics.
The competition was stiff ladies and gentleman, but we are proud to announce that for Table Topics, our champion Gajendran emerged as the FIRST RUNNER UP!
As for the International Speech category, Jason Lim emerged as the CHAMPION!
Here he is being presented with the challenge trophy flanked by (from left) Area W2 governor Ernest Wong, Gajendran, John Lee and Division Governor Dr. Sharon Tong.
Gajen and Jason are very pleased with themselves, but John is already plotting the next round. Nonetheless, we stayed true to our student roots by ending the day with a round of picture-taking (aka camwhoring)
Members of HELP UC Toastmasters Club, may this be a common sight for many more years to come:
Kuching and the District Conference here we come!
