Nĭ hăo! My name is Yasmeen Herb. I will be spending my senior year in Taiwan. I was born and raised in Georgia and am currently a junior at Dunwoody High School. I’ve lived in Dunwoody almost my entire life, excluding seven months in first grade when I lived in Kuwait with my mom, dad, and brother. Living in Kuwait definitely made me much more curious and eager to live overseas again. Right now I split my time between my mom’s and my dad’s houses. I have one older brother and an older step-sister and a huge black cat named Flynn. At school, my favorite subjects are literature and social studies classes. Outside of class, I am a member of several National Honor Societies and the UNICEF club. My favorite hobbies include reading, writing, soccer, and hanging out with my friends. I am incredibly excited to be spending my senior abroad. Learning Mandarin will be very challenging and I will need to spend a lot of time studying before I get on the plane. I have always thought it would be amazing to learn Chinese and am so happy that I will be able to learn it in Taiwan. I will miss my family and my friends very much when I’m gone but this experience is definitely worth it. I love learning about and experiencing new cultures and I will continue to do so for the rest of my life. I can’t thank Rotary or my parents enough for allowing me to go on this amazing adventure that has already changed my life!
