Leo to Lion Spotlight: Rafael “Zullu” Moreira
The Leo to Lion Spotlight will feature former Leos who have chosen to continue serving their communities as Lions to inspire other Leos to follow in their footsteps and join a Lions club. The first spotlight is on Lion Rafael “Zullu” Moreira. Rafael learned about the Leo Club Program through an invitation from a friend, and was a member of the Gama Omega Leo Club for 13 years. In May, he decided to become a Lion and joined the Gama Lions Club.
- What does it mean be a Leo?
To me, being a Leo was not only about doing charity and promoting philanthropy, but also about taking the responsibility to challenge our society, promote the rights we have as citizens and better our lives. Leos are not only a group of young people; they are an immeasurable movement that respects others and their rights as human beings. Youth are the vision of the future.
- What made you decide to transition and become a Lion?
I decided to become a Lion so that I could continue working with the Leo Club Program and so that future youth will also have the vision to join a Lions Club. Above all, I get to continue serving others with love, humility, joy and dedication.
- What is the best thing about being a Lion?
The best thing about being a Lion is that Lions serve unselfishly, foster leadership and promote social ideals.
- Do you have any advice for other Leos thinking about becoming a Lion?
My advice to Leos is to learn what you can about becoming a Lion so that you can be a leader, assist with the Leo Club Program and create local opportunities for service. Also, never stop being humble and wise, which is what makes a great Lion.
