“I joined RYLA, first time in Rome two years ago and now in Bourgas, Bulgaria, because I wanted to feel the spirit of the big Rotaract family. I had been informed, and then I realized that RYLA is a great place to change and challenge yourself. According to my last experience in Bourgas and the two previous, I believe, that joining RYLA is a combination of unforgettable moments and valuable memories. I developed my social network and I learnt how to be a real leader. It is truly once in a life time journey!

Thank you Rotary Club Sofia International for having this amazing experience!”
