From Nine to Five

Do you know the power of believing? Jim Carry the well-known actor in 1985 was ver poor to the extent of sleeping on the street! Has found an empty Check thrown on the floor, so he took it and wrote $10,000,000 as the amount and 1995 as the due date. He kept dreaming that in 10 years he will have $10,000,000 in his bank account. He even worked on his self and attended different auditions. To his surprise, he got a role in a movie on 1995 with a pay check of $10,000,000 after exactly 10 years he won the same exact amount of money he wished for.

Lately, I have attended an outstanding event organized by the Rotary District 2451 new generations committee. Held at American International School West campus, around your life from 9 to 5. In a series of 3 articles (this is the first one), I will discuss my takeouts. We will be waiting for your next meet-up. This event was a nice mix among the generations: Interactors with Rotaractor with Rotarians.
