Message from Best RYLArian 2004: Deon Chan

RYLA was a valuable and unforgettable event. What also impressed me the most from RYLA were the words from a Rotarian.

The chance to experience army life was the reason why I joined RYLA. It was a valuable and unforgettable event as it is not easy to come across military knowledge, such as how to work in the dark without alerting your enemy, radio voice procedure and drill practice.

Our instructors were ex-soldiers and they were a living textbook to learn from. When they were performing their duties in the army, the most important part was to keep everyone informed of the situation; The weather, feature, enemy direction, etc. Although we may not become a soldier, their attitude can still be applied to the challenges in our lives.

What also impressed me the most from RYLA were the words from a Rotarian. He said that "Leadership is not for yourself". It is very true, God gave you leadership skills, but how to use it so as to create the biggest benefit to society?

Yours in Rotary,
Deon Chan
