Recently our returning Youth Exchange student Katherine, spoke to the club about her year long exchange to Ecuador. Katherine gave us an overview of her year in Ecuador; her host families, her schools, as well as the trips she took to the Amazon and Galapagos (where she spent her birthday) which were facilitated by the Ecuadorian youth exchange committee.
She spoke of the differences in celebrations,food, and cultural differences. In closing, she thanked the club for selecting her and for providing her with the opportunity to become a citizen of the world.
