Hi Dan. Jessica sounds like she is living the dream! For me, the biggest challenge of being an Ambassadorial scholar is finding a way to say 'yes' to every opportunity. There are only 24 hours in a day, and it is challenging to fit all that Rotary clubs offer into a sane schedule. For example, I am in Auckland right now. On Tuesday I spoke at three Rotary clubs: Westhaven at a breakfast meeting, Newmarket at a lunch meeting and Epsom at a dinner meeting. In between that I had to edit the film I am making for my university studies. Lots of my days resemble this. But as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar you have to grasp each chance offered to connect with your Rotary family and the community. Then the rewards follow! I have been invited into Rotarians homes, seen New Zealand through their eyes, travelled all over the North and South islands and discovered extraordinary places. Sharing experiences and learning what is important to people is the best gift of being an Ambassadorial Scholar. I am very lucky Dan, to be living my dream!
