Meet A Toastmaster: Eleanor Edwards

What is one thing that surprised you about Toastmasters?

One thing that surprised me about Toastmasters is how friendly and helpful everyone is. It is encouraging how so many of the members have given me helpful advice. It’s great how several of the members have offered to support me with getting set up with my Pathways and any general help outside the session.

They have given up their own time to give me extra support which is very generous of them. Being in Toastmasters gives
you the feeling of being a part of a community.

Recommend a book you recently read?

A book I recently read that I would recommend is ‘Dracula’ by Bram Stoker. It is very atmospheric and really captures your imagination. You feel like you’re in that castle in Transylvania. Every chapter leaves you in suspense, so you have got to keep reading. There are great characters in this book and Dracula himself is such a fantastic villain. Even though this book was written over a hundred and twenty years ago. I cannot think of a modern book or a film that is more entertaining than this.
