Szia! My name is LaRae Harris; I am 16 years old and a junior at Niceville High School where I take AP, AICE, as well as college classes at Northwest Florida State College. I am a NaGISA extern through the Niceville High School gifted program, which is a program that monitors coastal biodiversity, and I organize all of our collections and analysis. In the past I have been a clarinetist in the band and on the swim team. The school subjects that I am most interested in are literature and psychology because I feel like they are most applicable in the real world.
I live with my Mom, Dad, and younger sister in the tourist town of Destin, Florida which means I spend a lot of time at the beach paddle boarding, and of course swimming! Along with spending time at the beach, it isn’t uncommon to find me curled up with a good book, playing pool with friends, or studying Russian and Hungarian in my free time. I have a passion for learning about the world and have always dreamed of traveling abroad as an exchange student. Now that I am finally able to I plan to master the language as quickly as possible in order to take advantage of all the cultural experiences presented to me. I’m so thankful for Rotary for this opportunity and to my family for supporting my decisions. Viszontlátásra until then!
