My Bio


Ciao! My name is Lexi Tyrrell. I'm the youngest of five kids, I have three brothers and one sister but all of my brothers live on their own. I live between my mom and dad's houses in Cape Coral (since they're divorced.) I currently attend Ida Baker High school as a Sophomore which means I get to spend my Junior year in the beautiful country of Italy! In school I'm my sophomore class Treasurer, a Varsity Cheerleader, and on the yearbook staff. When I'm not in school I love listening to music, hanging out with friends and family, going to the beach, and volunteering! The summer before my sophomore year I volunteered at a preschool for underprivileged children ad my local hospital which inspired my love for children and helping others. I love listening to music whenever I can, I listen to old rock, punk, or pop mixed with other genres. Both my sister and I were adopted from different countries, her from Russia and me from China. This I believe sparked my interest in culture and language. While on my exchange I hope to learn more about European culture and how it differs from our culture in America. I also hope to be able to see many countries around Europe! I've never been away from my parents for more than a few days so being in a completely foreign country without them for a year is going to be an adjustment but I hope to become more independent and grow as a person (and of course learn Italian!) I'd like to thank Rotary for giving me this once in a lifetime chance and for my family and friends for being so supportive! I cannot wait to begin this journey! Arrivederci!
