My Bio


¡Hola! My name is Miles Debaun. I am a 16 year old Junior at St. Augustine High School and I will be spending my Senior year in Spain! I was born in Orlando, Florida but moved to St. Augustine, Florida when I was in 5th grade. I have a little brother named Gabe and a stepsister named Marlee. I live with my mom and stepdad half the time and my dad the other half. Outside of school I enjoy skateboarding, playing video games, and hanging out with my friends. In school I take classes like ceramics, Spanish, and Link Crew. Link crew is basically a club that upper class men can join to help the incoming Freshmen make a smooth transition from middle to high school. I work at a restaurant called The Beachcomber which is located right on the beach so I get a beautiful view of the ocean as I work. I love to travel, but honestly who doesn't, and I think that living in Spain will definitely change my life in a positive way. The only time I have been out of the country was during the summer of my Sophomore year where I visited Guatemala for two weeks. My trip to Guatemala really made me appreciate things that I never thought of before like having a fridge full of food and clean water. When I was younger I thought it would be really cool to host a foreign exchange student but little did I know, I was going to be an exchange student myself! I am extremely excited to live in Spain, learn Spanish, and experience the culture. Thank you Rotary for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime and I am so thankful to my mom and dad for letting me go on this adventure!
