It is hard to describe a whole year in just a couple paragraphs, but it is worth trying.  First of all it is important to say that it does not matter how much I explain how my year was or how many stories I tell about it, it is impossible to make someone feel what I did if one has never been an exchange student. The feeling is unique and indescribable. I remember the day I left Brazil as it was yesterday (even though it has been already a year since). I cried for the first 10 minutes of my first flight and then the only thing I could think about was how my life in Canada was going to be.  When I first arrived in Kingston there were at least 12 people waiting for me. I cannot remember what I said or what they did; I was too tired and afraid to turn that moment into a memory. But I remember after that I realized that my exchange was not a dream anymore, I was living it.
 
It was hard. It was very hard. And the 10 minutes of crying on the plane happened a couple more times again throughout the year. Today I realize all my tears meant that I was growing up, facing the world in a way I had not done before. Today I realize I had two options to mature. Do it through the years as everybody does or do it while having one of the biggest experiences of my life. I am glad I chose the second option.
 
 
 
WEEK 11 WHAT IS A PAUL HARRIS SOCIETY MEMBER?
 
The Paul Harris Society recognizes individuals who contribute US$1,000 or more each Rotary year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or an approved global grant. Paul Harris Society contributions count toward Rotary Foundation Sustaining Member (Annual Fund contributions only), Paul Harris Fellow, Multiple Paul Harris Fellow, and Major Donor recognition. Recognition consists of a chevron style pin provided by your District Paul Harris Society Coordinator. A US$1,000 gift in your name to The Rotary Foundation can create a legacy of helping many people live better lives around the world. 
 
I HAVE PAUL HARRIS SOCIETY MEMBERSHIP FORMS FOR YOU!
 

 
Millions of individuals and organizations will mark the International Day of Peace on 21 September by creating practical acts of peace, advocating for peace, and building public awareness. Here are 10 ways you can commemorate the annual day of global ceasefire and nonviolence:
 
 
Action requested: nominate one qualified Rotarian from our district for the Vocational Service Leadership Award
Due Date: 24 October 2014
 
We strongly encourage everyone to participate in Rotary’s recognition programs, which are designed to honor Rotary’s most dedicated leaders who serve their communities with compassion and perseverance. Exemplary Rotarians lead by example!
 
The Vocational Service Leadership Award recognizes Rotarians who have made a significant impact in advancing vocational service, but do not hold district or international leadership positions. This award is a wonderful opportunity for you to honor a Rotarian in your district who is actively committed to vocational service and may otherwise go unrecognized.
 
Please note that only one Rotarian per district may receive the Vocational Service Leadership Award each year and Rotarians may only receive this award once. A detailed explanation of the award criteria can be found in the nomination form, available for download at www.rotary.org/awards. Any active Rotarian in good standing who meets the award criteria is eligible to receive this award, except for current, incoming and past district governors, and current, incoming and past RI directors.
 
 
Completed nomination forms must arrive to the District Awards Chair by October 24. Eligible nominations submitted by the deadline will be processed and the District Governor will receive a certificate for your nominee in January 2015. Late submissions will not be accepted. Please submit your completed nomination via e-mail to Fred Carriere.
