September 6, 2009: One year ago, Yolanda Miller went to the Dundas Public Library to inquire where she could find the local Toastmasters club. "Downstairs, every Thursday evening", she was told. Since then, she has worked hard to improve her presentation skills for the purpose of growing her part-time evening business. Recently, Yolanda acquired a guest slot on Mohawk College's C101.5 FM Sunday Spanish broadcast. She discussed her business' products and its benefits to her customers. Yolanda also directed praise towards the Toastmaster program for her increased Confidence through Communication and Leadership.

 

 

 

October 20, 2009: Yolanda Velasco Miller became a member of a new club - CANADA.

On this day, the native of Mexico City officially jumped on board the greatest country in the world.

In front of family, friends and Toastmasters, Yolanda became a Canadian!
