It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us family.
To me, KIWIN’s is indescribable. It’s a mixture of happiness, fatigue, irritation (from early morning events), excitement, and a lot of weirdness all amalgamated together into this club. In my life, I’ve never witnessed the most awkward moments nor have I ever had every single weekend booked for projects to attend nor have I ever met the most peculiar people ever until I joined KIWIN’s. Now many may say, “Vicki, why in the world would you stay with KIWIN’s if you feel this way?” and I completely agree with those who feel that way, but all the inept moments that I have witnessed led to the most amazing memories in my life. All the endless projects we have every single week made me realize how much I love serving my community and others. And all the uncanny people I’ve ever met turned out to be some of the greatest people that have ever impacted my life. All of these things accumulated together is what makes me able to make me, me! And as cliché and stereotypical as that sounds, I’ve never come across a group that always had their arms open for me to join whenever I wanted to even if I wasn’t a member.
