When I started my journey as Area A6 Director on 1st July 2019, I had very little idea about what to expect from this leadership journey. Having joined Toastmasters Int’l in 2008, my journey of Toastmasters was more focused on lifting myself. When I was asked to take the challenge of leadership role, I thought perhaps it was an opportunity to share the goodness of Toastmasters to many more fellow members. It was indeed a significant step that I was willing to take. 

As my tenure as AD comes to an end, it is the right time to reflect upon my journey of learning and unlearning. 

What are my feel-good factors? 

What did I learn during my year as an Area Director?

In the end, I am deeply grateful to the encouragement and support extended by DTM Ranjit Acharya, DTM Suman Shakya, my fellow ADs, Area council, DTM Bhanu Dawadi, TM Anish Dixit, DTM Shaurab Lohani and all fellow Toastmasters in Nepal and beyond.
