Alex Mead 16 years of age DOB: June 17th 1996 Lecanto High School; International Baccalaureate program Sports: Baseball, Golf, Basketball Hello my name is Alexander. I do prefer to be called Alex but I have met many people in my life who prefer using ones full name and I am accepting to either name. I am a junior at Lecanto High school and I am involved in my schools IB program, which stands for International Baccalaureate which is a program dedicated to the outward learning of students as well as the use of a foreign language to accelerate in academics. I am also a part of my schools baseball team that in which I am a varsity pitcher and third baseman. In my free time I enjoy reading and learning what I can about the workings of computers. I of course, like many other teenagers, love to play video games of just about any kind. I love to interact with other people and learn more about them. I will not say that anyone is perfect especially not myself. I am an extrovert in every way and very outgoing. One of my worst tendencies is that I am very impatient but I have slowly begun to work on that (waiting on the acceptance was a very good test) and striving to become better. I also love to play golf as well as basketball both of which I am ok but no Jack Nicklaus or Larry Bird. My expectations for my rotary exchange experience are that I hope to gain a new language and cultural acceptance of the world around me. I am very open to any food of course and am willing to try any new food course items you could throw at me. I also am very open to any religion for I do not have a true religion of my own or that I deem prudent to study and learn more about.
