Rotarian Reflection – Marilyn Lopez

I joined Rotaract in 2002 after attending a college activity fair and in 2005 I had the opportunity to participate in a Rotary/Rotaract International trip to Managua, Nicaragua to help build homes for Habitat for Humanity. This experience was so fulfilling and life changing that it encouraged me to join Rotary after I finished graduate school. I joined Rotary in 2008 and as my career moved me throughout the country, I always knew there would be kindred spirits and like-minded individuals within Rotarians. I have found friendships and purpose in all the clubs I have been a part of, and I am beyond proud to be part of Rotary One for the last two years.
