My Bio


Hej! Mit navn er Cosette. Hi! My name is Cosette. I am 17 and currently a senior at P.K. Yonge in Gainesville, Florida. I am so excited to be taking a gap year in Denmark! I live with my younger sister, parents, cats, and dog. Since I was little, my family has always placed a major emphasis on travel and experiencing different cultures. Because of this, I’ve been able to experience amazing places such as England, France, and have even stayed at a boarding school in China through an exchange program at my school. I am involved in many extracurricular activities, such as tennis, FIRST Robotics, language competitions, helping to direct musicals, and I also work a part-time job. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, yoga, and running. I have always loved learning new languages, and have studied two years each of French and Spanish. Throughout my exchange, I hope to learn as much Danish as possible, immerse myself in the culture, document my experience through photography, and form lasting bonds with my host families and new friends. I am so thankful for this opportunity that Rotary has given to me and I can’t wait to share it with you!
