What is your favorite part of
motherhood so far? I never
imagined I’d actually enjoy
changing diapers! We take walks
in the park and read the
Children’s Bible each morning.
But my favorite part is simply
holding him. I can’t wait to see
his first smile!
What is your least favorite
part? My least favorite part has
to be sleep deprivation. I’ve
grown accustomed to taking a
series of naps instead of a full
night’s sleep. Although I can’t
complain too much, he’s a pretty
good eater and sleeper!
How has Rocco’s presence
changed you? The biggest
change is in my priorities.
Things that seemed so important a year ago just don’t matter
that much anymore. And things,
like whether or not Rocco had a
good burp or ate enough today,
are at the top of my priority list.

BHAVSAR INVITED TO ASIA 21 SUMMIT
2008 Olympic bronze medalist Raj Bhavsar (left) was among
more than 150 individuals to participate in the fourth annual Asia 21
Young Leaders Summit in Kuala
Lumpur, Nov. 20-22. Malaysian
Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd
Najib Tun Abdul Razak (right) gave
the keynote address.
What was the goal of this conference? The goal was to bring
together people from all over the
world who have been major contributors to their communities in
the form of social entrepreneurship,
and to collaborate on ideas and
goals to tackle leadership issues in
times of crisis. Some of the heavy
points focused on climate change,
financial responsibility, and qualities
of a true leader.
What did you speak about? There
was an opportunity during the conference for delegates and fellows to
share a moment of truth. This was
something in their lives that
changed their perspective on life,
something that altered the path that
they were to take from then on. The
moment of truth I spoke about was
in reference to my Olympic pushes
and how I took the responsibility of
my Athens disappointment and
turned into motivation for my 2008
push. It was an amazing feeling to
share such a personal moment with
so many already distinguished people. The greatest feeling was how
well received it really was.

What was the best part of the trip
for you? Outside of having my feet
massaged by goldfish, the best part
of the trip was the pre-event dinner.
I had the opportunity to meet people from all facets of life who
understand that they were put on
this earth to not only take, but to
give back. Everyone in that room
had an understanding of their social
responsibility, and you could literally feel that energy in the room.
