My Bio


Goedemiddag! My name is Katie Stephenson and I'm currently in the 10th grade at Armwood Senior High School. Thanks to Rotary Youth Exchange, I will be spending my junior year of high school abroad in the Netherlands! Being able to travel to completely new place that is so vastly different from Florida will be quite the experience, I can't wait to learn more Dutch, make friends from all over the world, and I can't forget about the amazing culture I will get to immerse myself into! Here in Florida, I live with my mom, dad, and my older brother. They've given me so much support through all of this, I don't know where I would be without them. In my spare time, I greatly enjoy playing the alto saxophone, piano, and a little bit of the ukulele! In my school, I participate in the band, which takes up a lot of time, but is worth it for all the fun times we have together, it is really a second family on its own. Drawing, writing, and reading are some of my favorite hobbies to keep me busy, and I can't forget about ice skating and hanging out with my friends! I can't express how excited and thankful I am to be given this life-changing opportunity! I know this year won't be the easiest, but I am up for the challenge it will give me, and all the adventures I will get to take! I'm so excited to explore the Netherlands, and hopefully Europe as well! Tot de volgende keer, Katie :)
