Bonjour! My name is Rebecca Hutchinson and I live in Jacksonville, Florida. I have two sisters and a brother. Rachel (19), Abigail (10), and Joseph (15). I am seventeen years old, and currently a senior at Mandarin High School. I will be graduating in May. I’ve lived my entire life in Florida, so I’m ecstatic for the opportunity to be able to go abroad and make France my home. I’ve studied French for two years, and I hope to become fluent in it. I have always been interested in french culture, so I am very happy that France has been chosen for me. At school I’m part of the school’s swimming and track team. I have been swimming competitively for 3 years and I have been running track for 5 years. I have multiple varsity letters in both. Whenever I have free time, I enjoy recycling old books into art projects, working with acrylic paints, playing music on my ukulele, piano, guitar, and bass guitar. I love to hang out with my friends and family. Once again, I am thrilled to be chosen to be part of this adventure. When I go abroad I hope to learn the language, grow as a person, find a new strength within myself, be more open to other cultures, and become more accepting of them.
