Club Meeting Recap - 3rd May
On May 3rd, Rtn. Jamalia Wyllie gave members a very thorough overview of her personal, academic and professional life along with the journey from Rotaract to Rotary during her Classification Talk.
"With two very peculiar names you can imagine that I have been dealing with mispronunciation and misspellings my entire life. The name Jamalia has an Arabic and African origin which means beautiful."

A seasoned runner might take water and protein bars on a long training run, but girls and women in Afghanistan consider other equipment more essential: knuckle dusters or pepper spray, so that when anybody comes close, they can demonstrate they have something to defend themselves. It’s one of the startling details in a 2019 documentary about female runners in the deeply conservative nation.
