Rotary to me was one of the best opportunities I've ever been given and it has completely changed my outlook on leadership. Yes, it is hard work and i did feel like quitting halfway through but I convinced myself to stay and it was the best decision I've ever made. RYLA is not just an opportunity to gain friends and a qualification it teaches you life lessons. I loved every minute of RYLA and if I could go back again and repeat it i would. I went there not knowing what to expect and was really anxious to start with but as soon as the week started I slowly but surely started to gain more confidence in myself. The best thing about RYLA is the feedback sessions after the activities and this for me helped a lot with the confidence situation as my peers and group mentor had told me how well they thought I did and it is always better to get someone else's perception on things in order for you to realise it yourself.
