Neima James Alexandria, a student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Public Health at Victoria University (VU) Kampala was last week unveiled as Rotaract Club President at a pompous installation dinner held at University’s campus.

Neima became a Rotaractor on 11th February of 2016. “Before that, I was just an active member,” Neima who hails from South Sudan said of her experience with Rotaract Club. “I faithfully believe that Rotary is a place for a dwelling heart,” she adds.

“I am a Rotaractor because I love helping people when I am capable. I love seeing people around me happy. And I always want to find a way to contribute to people’s happiness in one way or another. To me happiness is when people around me are actually happy,” she says.

Rotaract is a service club for young people of ages 18 to 30 who are dedicated to finding innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges while developing leadership skills and making friends from around the world.

“My new plans for this Rotary year is to actually build quality membership. By the time I handover to the new board. I believe members will be able to take on the roles for leadership without hesitation.

Quality membership is the essence of growth of the club. With quality membership, dedication and passion, there is no doubt RCT Victoria University will go places,”

Who is Neima?

Neima says she loves traveling and meeting new people and describes her personality as adventurous. She loves dogs, birds and nature. Cooking is her passion as she confessed. “I think I am a kind of lady who would play all day around with the kitchen. I am emotional but a very strong lady. My inspiration in life is to be happy,”

“I am part of Rotary because I will freely express my love and warmth to those who are looking for hope. The most important thing to do in life is to serve because you actually want to. Because it’s coming from within you.  

It is not because you want to leave a legacy. Whoever you are reaching out to, reach out because you love them and make them feel like they are home already.

Feeling Privileged

I want people who are seeking for the light to know that this Rotary Organisation is a shelter for Refuge and Hope. That’s why I am a Rotaractor and that’s why I will use my position as PE of Rotaract club of Victoria University to serve.  

I feel very privileged to become the new president of my club. Two reasons: I love to serve and I am sure this position will build me through all aspects of life. The lady I always aspire to be.
