Message from the District Director

Challenge Yourself badge
The more I challenge myself, the more I have learned and grown. Toastmasters has helped me improve my skills and outlook through various challenges and opportunities. Over the last few years, I have had the pleasure of learning through hands-on experiences as the District Public Relations Officer, Program Quality Director and various other roles at the Club, Area, Division and District levels. There’s a sense of awe I felt when I started this journey, and that stays with me.

As your 2016-17 District 101 Director, my vision is to help every District member grow through new and exciting opportunities. There is much to create, improve and influence in a District, particularly a brand new one. It is an exciting time for all of us to be part of this incredible year as a new District. I would be honored to have an opportunity to lead our District members to success.

Mythili Prabhu, District 101 Director
