Division A Director - Ali Haider

My journey as a toastmaster has been about one core belief: 'with enough persistence and focus, anything is possible'. And toastmasters has not just been a platform which allowed me to fail and succeed but more importantly it has been a community that always supported me. From my fellow members, I did not just learn about being a better speaker or a leader, I learnt about empathy, human connection, power of teamwork and service. As the candidate for Division A Director role for 2024-2025 my vision is to establish a culture in our district where we become a community where we never loses sight of our goals, we persist, we reach out, we help and ask for help, and that we uphold our core values of Integrity, Service, Respect and Excellence and we cherish how extraordinary privilege it is to belong to be a part of Toastmasters community.
