Bom Dia! My name is Hanna Foster, I am 17 years old, and I'm going to be spending my senior year of high school in Brazil. I currently live in the college town of Tallahassee. We've got 3 colleges based here; Florida State University, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, and Tallahassee Community College. I've lived in the same house for my entire life, with my mom, dad, and younger brother. We've also got two dogs, a cat, a snake named Uno, and the occasional chicken from my grandmothers' farm. I've always loved to travel, and was lucky enough to get to go to France for two weeks in June of 2013. That trip was really the tipping point for me to have this amazing opportunity to travel to another country for a year. I'd always wanted to be able to see all of the corners of the earth, and when I heard of Rotary, I knew it was exactly what i was looking for. On the first day of freshman year, in my French 2 class, some of the Rotex spoke to us. I was captivated; I wanted so badly to experience all of the wonderful things they had talked about. However, after many, many discussions with my parents, we decided that it wasn't the best time for me to go. But this year, after I got a job and proved that I could be serious about school, we decided to go for it! I'm so unbelievably excited to get to experience something so amazing at only such a young age, and I can't wait to do and see all of the amazing things that Brazil has to offer. Muito obigado, Rotary!
