My Bio

Bonjour! My name is Saniya Pradhan and I am an outbound student to France. I am 17 years old and live in Tallahassee, Florida with my parents, my brother, and my dog. I am currently a senior at Rickards High School and will be going on exchange during a gap year. I am part of the IB program at Rickards as well as a member of many clubs including Model UN, National Honor Society, and Photography Club. I also intern with a photojournalist at the Tallahassee Democrat. In my free time, I enjoy taking pictures, watching Netflix, reading, and listening to music. My parents moved to the United States from India so I grew up in a family that frequently traveled around the world. I went to France in the summer of 2015 and fell in love with the people, the food, and the atmosphere. I am so excited to have the chance to now spend a year there! I look forward to so much this coming year, including learning a new language, meeting new people, and immersing myself in a new culture. I hope to come back as someone who was able to overcome challenges and take on new opportunities while abroad. There will be so much to miss about Tallahassee, but I can’t wait to start this new adventure. I want to thank RYE Florida for giving me this opportunity to spend a year in France!
