Area 14 Director

I was born Cheryl Nazima Alli in a small country in South America called Guyana.
I migrated to the United States about 3 decades ago, most of my life in the USA has been in South Florida.
I have a daughter who is the light of my life, she inspires me to do the best that I can and to love life the way that she does!
I love the outdoors and enjoy riding my bike, going to the beach, kayaking and hanging out with my friends.
I joined Broward College Toastmasters Club 3 years ago and have missed only one meeting because it was impossible to join from the air.
I enjoy being toastmaster; I feel that I have become a better and more competent speaker than I was 3 years ago. I would like to acquire my DTM status one day soon.
