¡Hola! ¿Cómo estás? Me llamo Sydney Hale and I'm going to Peru! I have lived all my life in the beautiful town of St. Johns, Florida. I am 17 years old and my birthday is New Year's Eve. My parents are Rick and Kerry and my two siblings are Aaron(27) and Kendall(18). I love competitive cheerleading and hanging out with my friends. I am learning to surf and have a 9-foot yellow long board I named "Big Al." I have a Basenji named "Izzy" and 2 red-foot tortoises named "Speedy" and "Tank." My sister was an Exchange Student in 2012-2013 and lived in Poland. She was a huge inspiration because I saw what a great program Rotary Youth Exchange was and what an impact it has had on her life. I am extremely excited to have been selected as one of the 2013-2014 Exchange Students and I can't believe I will be living in Peru in less than 8 months! People dream about when they will encounter a life altering experience or for their life to begin; well mine begins this summer! I know exactly when my adventure will begin and I can't wait! Thank you so much Rotary for giving me this life changing opportunity! Traveling through South America, learning different cultures and languages, and meeting new people will make memories and friendships that will last forever. How could you not be excited?
