This August, I had the privilege of being selected to participate in the International Rose of Tralee as the Southern California Rose of Tralee 2010. It was incredibly exciting to travel to Ireland for the first time in my life and see the county from which my great-grandparents came. I was astounded by the open and friendly personalities of the Irish people who were very gracious in welcoming
the International Roses.
