Hi my name is Erica Shewbart. I would like to share some facts about me. I am from a small town called Crystal River. I have an older brother named Sam and a younger sister named Hannah. My father is a pilot at Delta Airlines. On occasion I am blessed with the opportunity to fly overseas with him. I have been to Spain, Greece, Italy, and Aruba. I love traveling. Unfortunately, it is only for a few days but I am still excited whenever I get to go. I am in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program at school. This is a program where the students use all the same curriculum around the world. I am involved with my schools FFA program. This is an agricultural club that specializes in breeding and showing livestock. I also volunteer at a local wildlife shelter where we take in injured animals indigenous to Florida and nurse them back to health. I love horseback riding and do it whenever I can. I love animals and hope to become a veterinarian someday. I wanted to be a RYE student because I saw it as a once in a lifetime chance that could be an exceptional learning opportunity. I could learn a different language, culture, and become a better and well rounded person.
