Maria Martinez:  2nd year with  16.5 hours of service!

Why did you join Rotaract?

I joined Rotaract because I was affiliated with interact in high school and loved doing community service. I also wanted to join at least one club in Santa Cruz to make more friends.

What was a highlight in Rotaract? Could be a social, service event, or a random moment in meeting!

A highlight in Rotaract was the first service event that I went to in which we helped clean up a beach in Monterrey and in which I met some people that I would be friends with for a long time.

If you could choose a position, what would it be and why?

If I could choose a position, I would be historian because I love to take pictures at events and am very good with social media.

Is there any advice you’d like to pass on to future members?

My advice is to go to as many service and social events, both are a great way to talk to people and are a great way to get away from the stress that can be brought on by academics.

 Denise Long:  2nd year with 8  hours of service!

Why did you join Rotaract?

I joined rotaract because I was in interact and key club in high school and wanted to continue volunteering in college.

What was a highlight in Rotaract? Could be a social, service event, 
or a random moment in meeting!

My favorite rotaract social is probably the camping trip. It was a great bonding experience. I didn't feel very connected to the club as a 1st year but after getting to know other members during the trip I began to look forward to attending more rotaract events.

If you could choose a position, what would it be and why?

If I could choose a position it would be secretary because I enjoyed being key club secretary in high school.

Is there any advice you’d like to pass on to future members?

Don't be afraid to try something new by attending as many service events and socials as you can!

joshFlashback to Fall Quarter! We would like to congratulate members who have reached our expectation and more!

Josh Pe: 4th year with +20 hours of service!

Why did you join Rotaract?

I joined Rotaract because I have a passion for service and, unlike many other community service organizations, everyone was super kind and down to earth.

What was a highlight in Rotaract? Could be a social, service event, 
or a random moment in meeting!

My Rotaract highlight would definitely be when we volunteered in San Jose at FLC. It was cool amy seeing how much energy and spirit all the Interactors had!

If you could choose a position, what would it be and why?

I’d go for president, without a doubt. I feel like I can inspire members to share the same passion for service that I have.

Is there any advice you’d like to pass on to future members?

My advice for future members would be to join now! I regret not joining earlier because I would’ve definitely ran for president if I had another year.
