ABOUT ME: Hello! My name is Kathy and I am proud to be your new National Service Director. Rotaract has truly become my family away from home. I will do my best with my fellow co-directors to make your service
experience the most fulfilling and enjoyable time you can have. A little about myself: while service is a HUGE part of my life, I do enjoy the finer things in life as well. I am always down to go on an impromptu shopping spree or explain the amazingness that is SeaWorld. So, as you’ve probably guessed – I’m a complete dork, but DO come talk to me! All these exclamation points cannot properly convey how excited I will be to meet you!

ABOUT ME: Hi! My name is Jonathan and I am your International Service Co-Chair. I did Interact in high school and I absolutely loved it. Luckily, Cal Rotaract was able to bring me the same excitement last year and I cannot wait to get to know more members. I am extremely outgoing and I love meeting new people at every occasion. I even made some friends at People’s Park while playing basketball during freshman year. (Shocker! They are really funny and great to play with.) Hopefully I will become someone’s close buddy next year! I enjoy hearing stories about people’s life in general. Most importantly, I am great at giving relationship advices.
