Congratulations Vikas, and all the very best for the next level of the contest.
There is no secret to success. If you just do what you want to, there is no limit to what you can achieve. Vikas Ranga has been walking this path and on the way he keeps inspiring everybody!
Vikas joined Margao Toastmasters Club in Goa just five weeks ago. In his first meeting as a member, he participated in table topics (extemporaneous speaking) and was voted the best table topics speaker. His tongue-in-cheek speech brought giggles in the audience.
He went on to participate in the table topics contest at the club level. He was adjudged the first runner’s up, and qualified to the area contest. The area contest was a bigger stage- 3 clubs from Goa and 1 from Pune- a total of 8 participants, and a huge crowd for an audience.
The competition was tough- seasoned toastmasters, displaying their elegance and flair for public speaking. Vikas was a newbie in toastmasters. He went on the stage, and moment the topic was thrown onto him- he went on to deliver his speech, with appropriate body-language and superb expressions. With his hilarious content, the entire room was filled with a loud roar of laughter and then a thunderous applause.
When the results were announced, Vikas was the first runner’s up again, but this time at the area level. This means he goes on to the division level contest in Pune, to represent the area (Goa and Pune) on 12th October 2013. And all this, even before he has delivered his ice-breaker (first speech in toastmasters).
Nothing much remains to be said after seeing this. Stammer, or no stammer- does it matter after all..?
