Rotarians have amazing stories. The Rotarian magazine is kicking off 2016 with several first-person accounts of our members’ life-changing experiences, some harrowing and all profoundly felt. One story relates how the love of travel inspired by a Rotary Youth Exchange to Argentina led Amanda Bond to make a daring move — to Bali. When she decided to turn her experience as her Rotary club’s public relations committee chair into a full-time career specializing in online and event marketing, she decided to focus on building her professional skills and network while enjoying a much-needed tropical getaway. Now back home with a new job and a newfound sense of freedom, Amanda is excitedly anticipating where the future will take her.
