Hello! My name is River Braden and i will be spending 2017-2018 school year abroad in Turkey! I'm 17 years old and I am a junior at Seminole High School. I live in Sanford with both of my parents and five goats that I adore. In school the classes I enjoy the most are 3-D art, ASL, and Psychology. At first I was very unhappy that I had ASL on my schedule. But as the year went on I began to love learning sign and hopefully to become fluent in it. At school I am also a member of our FCA club which stands for Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Whenever I have time I love to play paintball. I have been playing paintball for about 3 years but this past year I've decided to buy my own gear and love it. I enjoy meeting new people at the field who love the sport as much as I do. I also love to paint in watercolor and creating things. For the past 2 summers I went to North Carolina with my church to a youth camp called fuge. Ever since the first year it has sparked a desire to travel and see more of the world. I am really excited to spend my senior year abroad even though I will be missing out on things that seniors do it is no question that it will be so worth it. Thank you so much Rotary for giving me this opportunity.
