Rotary Club of Everett
At 12:04 PM President Greg Lineberry called our 5,423rd meeting of the Rotary Club of Everett and his 21st meeting of the year.
Neil Angst led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.  
Brian Hollingshead gave the Thought of the Day which was a quote from Dalia Lama. “Every day, think as you wake up: Today I am fortunate to have woken up. I am alive. I have a precious human life. I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry, or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”

No visiting Rotarians. Guests included Melissa Siv from Peoples Bank (Will McMahan’s guest), Trisha Roberts, Cascade High School; Tricia Schuldt, Sequoia High School; Breanna Smith, Everett High School; Alma Jauregui, Mariana Oliva-Jauregui’s mother, and Melissa Scott, Liberty Scott’s mother.

PROGRAM:  Study Abroad & Beyond: How Rotary Youth Exchange Can Make a Difference for Youth
Kari Petrasek introduced Daniel Nielsen, former Everett Rotary Youth Exchange Student. He now lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Daniel told us his story as a Rotary Youth Exchange Student. He stated “Rotary connects people”.
He became a youth exchange student for the chance to see the world outside of his country. He had the opportunity to rediscover himself.
While in Everett, he had three host families and experience different cultures within the same community.
In 2016, he moved to Aalborg, Denmark to attend the university there. He joined the UN Youth Association of Denmark to be involved with Human Rights and Children Development.
In 2017, he studied abroad in Korea at the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
In 2019, he went to Edinburgh, United Kingdom where he learned more about himself and experienced another culture. We are more similar than different.
Daniel ended with “pay attention to what you feel passionate about”. Being an exchange student made me realize that I can shape my trajectory, opportunity for understanding and empathy.
President Greg thanked Daniel for presenting today and adjourned the meeting at 1:05 pm
