It boggles the mind to think how many people we casually meet on our daily path who have amazing stories to tell. Toastmasters and the Founder's District Speakers Bureau teamed-up with TEDxYouth@BommerCanyon to coach teens on how to share their stories of achievement and self-discovery.

Congratulations to our many local heroes from the mentors behind the scenes to the young speakers that took center stage and now have a powerful message posted on YouTube.

Featured on the Founder's website are three of the eleven presentations:

Staphany Hou, University high school senior (Irvine), will defend the virtues of well roundedness and disprove Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000-hour rule in his bestseller Outliers.

Gabe Eggerling, at age nine, saw the need for impoverished kids to have access to books and started a library in Peru from the comfort of his home in Huntington Beach.

Mun Jen Ng, a 2013 semifinalist in the Toastmasters International speech contest, shares a timeless tale: the struggle of honoring one's own identity whilst trying to pleasing others.
