Inmate Letters



Letter from Billy W.M.

Terrell Unit

Rosharon, Texas

    February 26, 2005

    Dear Sir,

    I am a member of Toastmasters International Gavel Club, “Collective Voices”. I am addressing this letter to you with the intention to: 1). Explain how important Toastmasters is to me, 2). What I intend to do with my ability to use Toastmasters and,

   3). Why I should tell others about Toastmasters International.

   Toastmasters has equipped me with the ability to speak before a large audience where prior to my entry in this program, I would experience fear of public speaking.

   I intend to use these skills to become a peer educator, for who is best qualified to speak to today’s youth than someone who has walked in their shoes i.e., lived the life they have.

  I also intend to continue to advocate and enlighten others about Toastmasters International and how this program has allowed me the opportunity to turn my life around and be an asset to society and a positive minded person.

  I do not wish to take more of your time. However, I wanted to be sure you had an opportunity to hear my voice since our club name is, “Collective Voices”.

  On behalf of all the members, I would like to thank you for allowing me your time and I hope I have given you some insight as to what this program means to me and the other members of “Collective Voices”.
