"On September 21, 2022, at 2:00 PM I schedule a tour to visit Rotary International in Evanston, Illinois! However, to my surprise, I got a call a day before for me to go to Rotary International that President Jennifer Jones was going to be there for a couple of minutes because she was in meetings after meetings. However, she made time to meet with me. So, I got to meet her and other wonderful individuals that work with her! I got to briefly speak to her about DEI strategies my passion to help individuals with disabilities and my commitment to Rotary. She was very excited and happy! ­čĄŚ I also gave her my Rotaract business card!
It was a life-changing experience and I am so happy I was able to make the visit! "
