For anyone brave enough to venture into the meeting today, we got to hear another great presentation from a former Rotary Ambassador Scholar, Rebecca Byerly. Rebecca used her scholarship as a springboard to become an international journalist who has reported for TIME, National Geographic, Wall Street Journal, The Daily Beast, CNN and other major media organizations.
She has also broadened her work into video, radio and independent films that capture stories of people in some of the most remote and populated places on the planet. From places like Mongolia, Libya and Kashmir to her latest project, a 200 mile run in the Rocky Mountains, she continues to focus on the empowerment of women along with Peace and Conflict resolution.
Her work appears regularly in the Christian Science Monitor and National Geographic. With such a strong foundation in Rotary, we are very proud of Rebecca and all her accomplishments!
