Claudia Villarreal
Home Club:
Toastmasters Malaga
Personal statement:
My commitment to Toastmasters started in October 2010 when I helped co-found Toastmasters Malaga. Serving others has fulfilled my purpose and has allowed me to become a better leader and person. As a mentor, I continue to guide new toasties through their journeys, and witnessing their evolution challenges me to be the best version of myself. It's simply rewarding on many levels. Throughout my Toastmasters journey, I have continually given back what has been given to me, and sharing my knowledge with others is part of being a caring leader. 

If elected Club Growth Director, I will strive to uphold the District mission, "to build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence", and uphold the Toastmasters International core values (Integrity, Respect, Service, and Excellence). Likewise, I'd like to see us improve how we communicate in public and amongst each other on all platforms of communication so that we can grow and prosper together as a District. My passion, dedication, and optimism will be key to making this happen!
