3, 2, 1… Take Off!

Today (August 23, 2016) is the day I begin my journey as an official exchange student!! After a whole year of planing and preparation including interviews, outbound training, applying for visas, and language learning, I will embark on my great adventure to France through the Rotary Youth Exchange program for 10 months. I would have never imagined this fantasy that seemed so far away would now be here!

Shoutout to my friends, teachers, and Rotarians who have supported me through the craziest of dreams. But most importantly, I would like to thank my family. They have stood by my side and supported me immensely and for that, I will always be grateful. I am going to miss them soooo much but I know they’re only a FaceTime call away!

Love you all and see you in 10 months America 🤘🏻

I’m especially going to miss my dogs 💕
