Ambassadorial Scholar Visit
At last week's meeting, Howe of Fife Rotary Club members were delighted to welcome Ambassadorial Scholar, Lungile Zakwe, from the Rotary Club of Rosebank, South Africa. Lungile achieved a law degree from Wittbank University, following which she spent a year in Japan learning the language and something of the culture of a country she found to be very different from own. Lungile is at present studying an Honours course in International Relations at St. Andrews University.
During Lungile's inspirational presentation, members learned much about life in South Africa, the mood there post-aphartheid, and its people's hopes and fears for the future. Lungile ably conveyed her own optimism about the country to her audience, who were in no doubt that with young people of Lungile's calibre in South Africa, its future success was assured.
In thanking Lungile for her talk, President Dennis Beattie presented her with a banner from the Rotary Club of the Howe of Fife to take back with her to the Rosebank Rotary Club in South Africa.
