As a Prospective member I really wanted to get a few questions in about the journey to Induction , there is so much to learn about the balance and ways of NKRC but I had just a few questions for Antoniette, who always seems so quiet , observant with her amazing posture. Our Conversation outlined below:
PM Desiann: Hi Antoinette, I have been meaning to ask for a while about your journey from prospective member to Rotaractor. How has it been for you?
Rotaractor Antoinette: My journey has been very fulfilling, though I am not new to the Rotary/Rotaract family. However, in terms of being a member of the NKRC family, I was encouraged at each step of the way by my fellow rotaractors and was made to feel as part of the family from inception.
PM Desiann: was it ever too challenging to create a balance between your personal life and club duties, especially since this is such an active club?
Rotaractor Antoinette: It was never a challenge to create a balance. I am an insurance advisor with Guardian Life Ltd, and as such the nature of my job allows me to be flexible. I am able to structure my time to accommodate work, personal life and club activities where I am able to have balance amongst all.
PM Desiann: What does Antoinette enjoy doing outside of her Rotaract duties?
Rotaractor Antoinette: I am a very sociable person and also very family oriented. So outside of Rotaract duties I am spending time with my family or enjoying time with my friends, whether just going to catch a movie, going for dinner at a restaurant or an early morning beach run. In addition to that I serve on the executive body of my community citizens’ association as the secretary so I am also doing service work at home as well.
PM Desiann: Advice us prospective members Why NKRC?
Rotaractor Antoniette : I would say NKRC chose me , I went to a Fundraising meeting event before a club meeting, the spirit and passion of NKRC, along with encouragement from other Rotaractors I knew from UWI got me here !
