Bonjour mes amis! My name is Granger West and I am 17 years old and live in East Cobb (a northwestern suburb of Atlanta) with my mom and younger sister. I am a junior at Walton High School where I am enrolled in the STEM Academy for Biomedical Sciences. Although my classes focus on preparing me for a medical career, my favorite classes are French and History. Outside of school, I am heavily involved in my Boy Scout Troop, my Church, and my Varsity Rowing. I have always been interested in various things, some of my favorite things are cooking, practicing music, discovering different cultures, trying new things, and now exploring the world... So, I am beyond stoked to be spending my senior year in France, representing district 6900 in Georgia for the first time. I can't wait to see what is in store for me on exchange and look forward to becoming bilingual, bicultural, making new friends, and creating worldwide connections. I would like to thank my friends, family, and teachers for supporting me along this journey and of course my biggest thanks to all of Rotary for making this once in a lifetime dream come true. Merci, à plus tard!
