Why do you want serve in the positions you’ve selected?

When I went to camp the junior counselors were like a role model and people you could turn to if you had any questions about anything. They were all so nice and really helped me grow as a person and helped me become a better leader. I want to serve the role for other people and inspire them better themselves and learn how to accept themselves for who they are.

How has your experience as RYLA participante impacted you?

My RYLA experience was life changing! It taught me to accept myself and build confidence in myself. I made many great friends that I still talk to and had shared many laughs. The etiquette dinner taught me so much and I am very grateful for that experience.

How do you feel you can contribute and grow RYLA?

I can represent South Dakota and encourage others from my state to become more active with their rotary clubs. My experience was so positive I tell people at least weekly about the camp and that they should give it a try.
