Anita Fain Taylor -3rd Place Winner

Gelfand Celebrates the 2018 World Championship of Public Speaking

Join Gelfand Good Morning Toastmasters Club on Saturday, November 16, 2019, as we celebrate and honor our own Anita Fain Taylor for her historic achievement, winning the third-place trophy in the 2018 Toastmasters International World Championship of Public Speaking.

Anita’s phenomenal journey began at Gelfand, her home club. She wowed judges and audiences on her way to the World Championship in Chicago on August 25, 2018. Over the course of several months her dynamic speeches elevated her above competitors from across the globe. Anita’s unique style of injecting humor and faith into difficult topics helped her to reach the top ten with her speech,“Take Your Shot.” With her final speech, “It Is What It Is. It Ain’t What It Ain’t,” she earned the third-place trophy.

Anita and the first- and second-place victors made history as the first all-female trio of winners, and Anita was the first member of District 47 ever to reach the winners’ circle in the international contest.

This is a feat that should be lauded and celebrated! Gelfand invites all members of District 47 to hear Anita tell her inspiring story and to share fun and fellowship with us.
