Hola!! Me llamo Emily and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to go on exchange to Ecuador this upcoming school year! While I am away I hope to gain a better understanding of a new culture, develop new strengths, and hopefully make some life-long friends. I was born in Colorado and moved to North Carolina where I resided for about 15 years. I enjoyed hiking and camping in the beautiful Carolina mountains. Two years ago we moved to Florida to start a new adventure in the sunshine state. I live with my mom and two dogs, Paco and Winston, in Saint Augustine, Florida. I am currently a junior in high school. I love to study English literature, psychology and history. I paint, sculpt, and draw almost everyday as I am aspiring to become a concept artist. I love to go to the beach, write fiction, and try new foods--one of my favorites is Thai food. I also bake sweets and treats for my friends, play video games, and go to art museums in my spare time. I’m grateful and honored I get to be part of this years Rotary Youth Exchange. Gracias por leer! (Thank you for reading!) Chao!
