Why I Joined Rotary?
I joined Rotary because serving and helping others is in my blood. I grew up in Third world countries, like Peru and Chile. I also witnessed poverty and hardship to the extremes while I was in the Army, due to my deployments to countries like Iraq, Guatemala, and Honduras. In my personal life, I can say that I was one of the lucky few in the world that grew up in a comfortable home with all the benefits of a family that was wealthy and educated. But, as I said, I am one of the lucky few for that. I can only wish that every child, woman, and man in the world had what I had. So, this is my way to make that possible one person, one child, one community at a time. Rotary has given me the opportunity to make my dream came true.
