Club Executive

Sarah Hui, President

Sarah Hui

Sarah enjoys giving back to her community so she was overjoyed when she first learned about the Rotaract Club of Toronto in 2012. She not only found a group of bright, enthusiastic young professionals who were passionate about giving back but she learned that Rotaract Clubs in partnership with Rotary Clubs had members all around the world who wanted to do the same thing!

After serving as Secretary of the club for two years, then Vice President for one, she is looking forward to serving as the President of this amazing club.

Our Rotary International President chose “Be a Gift to the World” as his theme for 2015-16. Ultimately Sarah hopes through sharing her time, talent and knowledge that she can make a genuine difference in the lives of others and contribute to the Rotaract Club of Toronto.



Earlyn D Etienne, Vice President

Earlyn D Etienne

Earlyn has always had a first-hand experience of the initiatives of Rotary International. As a teenager she has always wanted to be part of the Rotary family, because she had been inspired by their work done worldwide: whether it was funding libraries through the literacy programs, helping to provide clean water in desolate areas, assisting in vaccine distribution and the upkeep of health centres in developing countries.

Earlyn is passionate about water safety and quality, equity, environmental protection, the minimization of the impact we have on the environment, and the enhancement of public health and environmental health. In Canada we’re afforded with well-developed infrastructure albeit there are still many areas of poverty and aspects that need improvement. Earlyn wanted to be a part of contributing to society and the guiding principles of Rotary’s 4 way test- is it the truth, is it fair to all, will it build goodwill and will it be beneficial to all concerned?, synced with her motives.

Shortly after joining the club in the winter of 2013, Earlyn became part of the Youth Initiatives committee which worked closely with the Rotary Club of Toronto, to plan the 2014 and 2015 Youth Expo, Youth Day and Youth Civic Leadership Awards. Earlyn is excited and proud to be the club’s Vice President for the 2015/2016 year and she truly hopes that our contributions and initiatives fulfills the motto “Be a Gift to the World”.
