1. Where do you see yourself after Rotaract?
Continuing “Service Above Self”. Rotaract has definitely expanded my mind and opened my vision to a lot in the little time I have spent here, so I will be seeking to continue that growth, while staying engaged with service projects through the parent arm and even other service clubs out there. Not sure with which Rotary Club at the moment (Kingston East and Port Royal looking good, if they feed me one more time they hold me).
2.What’s one assumption people make about you that is dead wrong?
Hmm, people always assume that I’m quiet and “can’t mash ants”. Probably its because of my lamb like persona, baaee.
3.Using only two words, describe yourself.
Attentive, down-to-earth (as cliche as it sounds)
4. How do you stay engaged and passionate about your club responsibilities as Treasurer?
Reviewing the membership dues statements keeps me very much engaged, [side note] remember your district dues guys.😀 LoL… This is not my first run in with a treasury position so there was always a passion for it. But for the club, the many requests by the various directors and getting the money side of things balanced and keeping things in order for the club definitely keeps the passion lit. And of course all that keeps me engaged, don’t think I’ve had an off week yet maybe the second week in July hmm idk.
5. How did you get involved in Rotaract and why?
Well I got involved in Rotaract through one of my Best Friends Past Secretary Wayne Thorpe. Funny enough while he was studying overseas we got were talking one night about community service and ways to help homeless after he had an experience while traveling on a bus in the US. Low and behold he came back found Rotaract and roped me in (even though it was really Shawna who did the official invite, sshhh). I was a part of the Interact and Key Clubs while in high school and I’ve done labour day projects with various groups, so I’m no stranger to voluntary service. Honestly there is no special reason why I chose Rotaract other than the fact that I was invited by Wayne (Shawna). I knew of Rotary, but Rotaract was new to me. But approaching one year now since my first meeting it has been one of those right choices one makes in life.So I got involve through Wayne, but stayed for the experience; the family vibe and working together for the many worthy causes.
6.Tell me about one thing that is unique or remarkable about you?
Once I set my mind (like really set it) to completing something, I do it whether or I want to as best I know how. If for some strange reason I am unable to complete that task I become very uncomfortable.
