안녕하세요! or Hello! My name is Cynthia, but you can call me Cindy. I am a 2017-2018 Outbound to South Korea. I am 16 years old and I am currently a junior at University High School in Orange City. At school I take seven classes and I'm taking three more online because I will be graduating one year earlier than my cohort year, so I guess I could be classified as a senior. I have lived in Florida for my entire life. My brother and I are part of the first generation to be born in the U.S. as my mother, father, and everyone before them have been born in Vietnam. All throughout my 16 years of life I have formed a passion for all of the arts, especially music. The only time you will not find me singing, humming, or listening to music is when I'm asleep. I'm even listening to music as I write this. When I have spare time I am either reading a book, coloring in a coloring book, or playing mobile games; all while there's faint music playing in the background of course. Whenever I was on vacation with my family to Vietnam, I always knew that the Vietnam I was experiencing for the two months I would be there wasn't the same Vietnam for the people to lived there for their whole lives. This sparked an interest in what everyday life was like around the word. I was granted the amazing chance through Rotary Youth Exchange to be able to experience first hand what that everyday life will be like in a different country. Thank you, Rotary, for the once in a lifetime opportunity.
