Hallo! My name is Nicholas and I have been honored with being in one of the select groups of students to be a part of this amazing program! I am so excited to be going to Germany for my year abroad! I am 17 years old and I am a senior, vocal major at the Osceola County School for the Arts. I have been part of the Interact club at my school for three years and this year I was fortunate enough to be the President! The Interact is where I got the chance to be part of the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) and this is where I found out about the Rotary Youth Exchange program! I remember that being the first thing I told my parents as soon as I saw them. My family has been nothing but supportive throughout this whole process and I couldn’t have done it without them! I have three brothers and two sisters who are all older which makes me the “baby” of the family. I grew up in New Jersey and I still miss the snow so I am more than happy to be reunited as I get to go to a country that has more than two seasons. I have always loved being outside. I try to go out with friends as much as I can to play Soccer, Football, Frisbee or any other sport I can get my hands on. I hope I can continue that pattern as I start this new adventure in my life. I can’t wait to start my adventure through the Rotary Youth Exchange program because I feel like family when I speak with anyone in the program and that is why I know this program is going to be amazing from beginning to end.
