Presentation to Thomas Goddard
Presentation to Thomas Goddard for the Rotary Youth Leadership Award.
The Rotary Youth Leadership Award The many lessons RYLA have taught me has not only supported my career ambitions, but it has helped me conquer my lack of confidence. Since I experienced great hardship during a family incident that occurred a few years ago, it had been hard for me to feel comfortable with myself. This lack of confidence had been plaguing me for a long time until last week at RYLA. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet so many incredible people and for helping me conquer my fears.
Additionally, as I aspire to work within the Film/Television industry your lessons of confidence, teamwork and communication have become invaluable towards achieving my dreams. Without this course, the wonderful facilitators and life long friends I have made I would not be the same person I am today. On my train journey back last Sunday I found myself to be much more confident and helpful towards those in need of service, which I think highlights ROTARY's motto of "Service above self".
So I would like to personally thank you, as well as Kevin and all of the facilitators that were there, without you guys I would have not found the courage to be comfortable with who I am.
