My name is Imani Woodin, I am sixteen years old and I am originally from Tampa, Florida, USA but now I live in Tallahassee, Florida, USA. My father is originally from the US and my mother is originally from Kenya and together they raised my brother and I in a multicultural and globally aware household. My upbringing has reflected on my extra curricular activities in which I participate in- including Model United Nations, Muslim Heritage Club, and National Honors Society. In my spare time I enjoy read many books, watching documentaries, and spendig time with friends. I would like to participate in Youth Exchange to gain a new view of the world. I say this because for most of my life I have been living in the US, and although I have visited other countries and talked to people who have originated from different cultures, i have never stayed in a foreign country for an extensive period of time. Consequently, my view on the world has been limited to the American perspective in respect to personal experience. I have been speaking English and celebrating the same national holidays every year for as long as I can remember, and experiencing a new culture is the change that I believe I should endure in order to gain the world view that I desire. In the next year I hope to learn a new language and to have an experience that wouldn’t be obtainable if I stayed home.
