Hello! My name is Gabe Fox, and I am currently a sophomore at Pedro Menendez High School. I will be spending my junior year (2017-2018) in Denmark! I live in Hastings, a small farming community outside of St. Augustine, FL, which has had the distinction of being the potato capital of Florida in the past. I live with my mother, father and 11-year-old sister. We have a few pets consisting of our rescue dog Honeybelle, six cats and two aquariums of fish. I love cycling and skateboarding but nothing super extreme - I do enjoy a nice cruise. I am an archer and a member of my local 4H Toxophily club. I am an avid guitar player, beginning drummer, and a lover of all genres of music. My interest in photography works its way into my other past-times as well. But I must say that my favorite thing to do is meet new people and make new connections. I have been interested in the RYE program since the presentation at our school during freshman year. I am beyond belief that I have been accepted into this exchange. I know that there is so much to experience in this big world that we live in. Traveling abroad as a RYE ambassador will provide me with incredible growth as an individual but also broaden my membership in the global community. I can’t wait! I look forward to meeting my host families, making new friends, and learning Danish! Thank you Rotary for this opportunity of a lifetime!
