Alexis Tone from Howe Sound Secondary spent a year in Brazil as our Rotary Youth Exchange Student. She shared her experience at our regular club meeting today. Some of the things that made it an amazing year included:- learning a new culture and a new language, making new friends, hugging a sloth in the Amazon, swimming with dolphins, attending school, living with Brazilian families A life changing experience - that is for sure!
Rotary Youth Exchange is a study-abroad opportunity for young people to spend anywhere from a few weeks to a full year as an international student hosted by local Rotary clubs. By sharing your own culture & embracing a new one, you help foster global understanding - & learn a great deal about yourself & your country in the process.
