Greta Coatings! My name is Kasamba Kokayi, but you can call me Kas. I live with my mother, my younger brother and sister in Saint Petersburg Florida. I attend the Saint Petersburg Collegiate High School. As a student of the Saint Petersburg Collegiate High School along with my high school diploma, I will earn a two year college degree from from Saint Petersburg College. I am active in many of the clubs at my school. I am the president of the Multicultural Club, a member of the Interact Club, on the Ethics Bowl team, a part of the National Honors Society and Students for a Democratic Society. A long time pursuit of mine is Photography. I have been doing photography since about the third or fourth grade when I was a part of a Journalism based camp called the Midtown Magazine. Since then I have established myself as a freelancer and with the help of my mentor have had my works published by the Tampa Bay Times, a regional newspaper. Next to that I enjoy skateboarding, which I picked up about four years ago. Many of my family members and I are quite excited about the opportunity Rotary has offered me to go to Germany. I can’t completely express in words how great of an opportunity the RYE program is. I hope that I will look back at this experience years from now as a one of the greatest experiences I have ever had.
