Chair of International Breakfasts Malika Abrous and President Elect Shawn Jacobaccio with guest speaker Amy Yee

On January 18, 2024 Amy Yee honored the Rotary Club of New York with her presence as a guest speaker on her new book "Far From the Rooftop of the World"
In 2008 the Chinese government cracked down on protests throughout Tibet and journalist Amy Yee found herself covering a press conference with the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, his exile home in India. She never imagined a personal encounter with the spiritual leader would spark a global, fourteen-year journey to spotlight the stories of Tibetans in exile.
Amy gave a riveting encounter on her experiences.
