Bonjour! My name is Alexis deGregory and I’m 16 years old. I was born and grew up in The Bahamas on the beautiful island of Grand Bahama. I’m so excited to be a Rotary Youth Exchange student going to France! I can’t wait to go to France and experience a whole other culture so different from mine. I’m also really interested in becoming fluent in French and taking full advantage of this amazing opportunity. I will definitely miss the beaches and warm weather at home but I can’t wait to see what France has in store for me. I live with my mom, dad, and my two sisters. I love my family; they’re all sarcastic and funny. I only wish that they could experience this exchange with me. I’m in the 12th grade at Bishop Michael Eldon School; I am also a prefect and house captain. In my spare time I like to go to the beach, hang out with friends, dance or play soccer. I’ve taken ballet for 11 years now and soccer for 9 years. Both of these activities have become a huge part of my life and make me happy. I’m passionate about becoming a pastry chef in the future and this is one of the reasons that I’m so excited to go to France and get a taste of what pastry is all about.
