Who knew that something as seemingly small as a Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship could change so many people’s lives so dramatically? Woodrow “Wooj” Byun was the recipient of that award and it set him on a path that would change not only his life drastically, but the lives of so many people around him.
My Rotary Journey is the powerful story of Byun’s life and how it was changed and shaped by the Rotary Association. Adopting the Rotary’s motto of “service above self,” Byun has touched so many other people’s lives by donating so much of his time and talents to help make the world a better place. He’s tutored elderly immigrants so they could pass the US citizenship test, wrote books to help Koreans understand the US legal system and serves as president of the Rotary Club in Edina, Minnesota. Byun shares his inspiring stories in this book in a witty and heartfelt way and aims to inspire a new generations of Rotarians.
