The interview came about due to Karyn's international leadership experience as only the second woman in the history of Junior Chamber International (JCI - or Jaycees as it was formerly known) to be elected to the position of World Preisdent. She was elected to serve as the global leader in Cannes, France in 1999, assuming office for the year 2000.
