Identitywa housemates present at the Attadale Rotary Club
The citizenship key of LIFE means making an active contribution to our community, taking risks and having fun.
Identitywa housemates Simon, Jess, Eileen, Joshua and Christopher certainly embraced this when they took on a public speaking engagement at the Attadale Rotary Club in April. Club President, Colin McCulloch, asked them to share their life stories with members and followed up with a question and answer session.
For Jessica, the opportunity to meet the members was a highlight: “I liked going to Rotary and meeting new people,” said Jessica. “Even though I am a bit shy, everyone was kind and nice so I really enjoyed the evening and the delicious dinner we shared. I definitely would like to go back sometime!”
Identitywa House Senior, Amanda, went along on the night too. “The Rotarians were very welcoming,” said Amanda. “It was wonderful to watch everyone enjoy the opportunity to present. “We were all extremely proud of everyone for agreeing to what was a bit daunting for them when first proposed by the club. “Well done to all!”
