Wow, I’m finally done serving Key Club as a President. It really feels like just yesterday when I was put into the position. I’m so thankful that I was able to serve my club’s individuals and board. I’m glad I had the opportunity to share my love for Key Club with them, too. I hope that I inspired people just like my last President did, and I know that the new board will do the same and even better.
I joined Key Club with no idea of what to expect. I didn’t know it was a service club or an international club or a very spirited club. At the time when I first joined during my freshman year, I was incredibly shy and my helping hand was only for those around me. After four years, I can see the growth I made because of this one club. I can actually talk in front of large crowd of people, and I can actually approach a stranger and talk to them, and I can actually have a conversation with an adult, and I—along with many others— have been able to extend a helping hand to many in my community, neighboring communities and all over the world.
I can’t really put my finger on what I love about Key Club, exactly; there’s too many things, really. I love how I met Roxanne Dulay and how she shared her love for Key Club with me and inspired me just so much. I love how Key Club allowed me to do something I love with people I love. I love how Key Club allowed me to expand my helping hand to not only the people around me but also people in neighboring cities and people around the world. I love how Key Club incorporates spirit with service. I love how Key Club defined me as a person and helped me to develop my leadership skills, speaking skills and confidence. I love how Key Club has helped me to determine what I want to do in the future. I love how Key Club created so many memories for me. I love that I made so many friends, many of whom I can consider as family from both my own school and other schools. I love that I was able to experience two years of Norwalk Key Club finally having a Kiwanis sponsoring club. I love how Key Club was (and still is) the majority of my social life. I love how each time I would come home from a service event, I would be so happy. I love how Key Club has made my high school career more enjoyable than ever. I love how Key Club genuinely makes me happy, overall.
Knowing that I’m no longer President or Vice President isn’t exactly what is making me feel so reminiscent and a bit sad (although that’s partially it)… Its the fact that my Key Club journey is actually nearing its end.
There is a word for the thing the llama is doing. It is the best possible word for this phenomenon. When an animal moves by moving all four feet like this at once it’s called… PRONKING.
I can’t make stuff like this up.
Okay. I’ve seen various antelope do this. I had NO idea llamas did, too!
