Sveiki visi! Mano vardas yra Hannah Nelsonas! (Hello all! My name is Hannah Nelson!) I am 17 years old and a senior at Winter Springs High School. After I graduate in May, I will be spending a year abroad learning, and experiencing a new culture in Lithuania. I love to travel and experience new things so this opportunity is what I love to do. In school, I am a section leader in the Band of Gold and apart of the Symphonic band. Also, I am part of the girl's varsity weightlifting team as co-captain. I am so blessed to have such a great support system through Rotary and through my friends and family. My family consists of my dad, Larry, my mom, Sherise, my sister, Petrea, my brother, Kaleb, and my two dogs, Nacho and Daisy. They help me so much with things like learning Lithuanian, learning its culture, and much more. When I return in 2016, I plan on going to the University of North Florida and majoring in International Studies. I am excited to start my journey towards the adventures and stories I am going to make in Lithuania and to the best U.S. ambassador I can possibly be.
