Hello, My name is Ashley Zerick but all of my friends and family call me Ash. I was born in Colonial Williamsburg Virginia, but I currently live in Lake Mary Florida. I have 3 great parents that love me, My Mother is a RN, my Father is a boat engineer and my Stepfather is a water waste engineer. I have 2 sisters, 1 older (20) and 1 younger (15), so yes I am the middle child and love being a little and big sister. I am 17 years old, but will be turning 18 in April a month before I graduate this year. Currently I am a senior at Lake Mary High School where I have found a love and interest for Art and Art History. In my spare time I love to do yoga, spend time with family and friends, and hit the beach, but I can never go wrong with curling up on the couch or on my hammock and reading a great book. I am very optimistic about what I want to do with my life, I am bouncing around the ideas of either being a Physical Therapist or a hostel owner in a different country other than my own. With being an exchange student I really hope to be able to gain all the knowledge I can about the country I am being sent to, I am very excited about being given this opportunity to go to Slovakia and say I was able to spend a year in a completely different country and be submerged in their culture and to represent the US. This will be an experience I will carry on for the rest of my life.
