My name is Gage Dakota Ashton. I currently am an outbound for Taiwan in the 2017-2018 school year. I was born in Norfolk, Virginia on June 7th, 1999. I currently live in St. Augustine, Florida with my loving parents, 2 younger sisters and 2 dogs. My dad is currently employed as a Master Chief in the U.S Navy, which means that since I was young we have been moving all around the costal U.S.A. I have lived in the East and West coast of America as well as Hawaii, making picking up and going somewhere new a common occurrence for me. I am currently a senior in High School, and 17 years old. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my friends, playing video games, and learning more about computers. I like to keep tabs on old friends I have made over the years often keeping on contact through Skype. The reason I applied to rotary youth exchange was because I feel like its the best opportunity I currently have to really see the world outside of America, and immerse myself in someone else's culture and customs. I look forward to going on my exchange and seeing what Taiwan has to offer, as well as being an ambassador for America.
