My Bio


こんにちは、私はケリーです . Hello, my name is Keily pronounced like Kaylee (Titi or Lee work fine too). I am 15 years old and I am currently a sophomore at Pompano Beach High School. The School has offered many opportunities to travel and this is where I discovered the RYE exchange program. I've been obsessed with Japan since elementary when I was placed in the Japanese class and I'm praying that I learn the language. I know English, Spanish and I understand Portuguese. I wasn't able to learn the Japanese because Japanese was removed due to budget cuts, but I was lucky enough to get my share of Japanese competitions. Quick recap of my life so far! My parents and sister are Venezuelan, but I was born and raised in Florida!! My parents encouraged me to go on exchange (my mom was a bit against it at first since I'm the youngest ). I play the violin at my school's orchestra and at the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra. I'm a mentor at my school where I help out the freshman and I'm currently involved in the National Art Honor Society. You can usually find me drawing characters I've created, playing the violin or petting my French Bulldog Rollie. I'm a little too obsessed with Art and Music, but how could I not be? My dream Is to work at Pixar as an animator. I'm hoping to become better as a person during exchange and to hopefully surprise myself with what I accomplish! The journey will be rough, but it's worth it!!
