Oi, meu nome é August Herrmann. I am a sophomore at Gainesville High School, and I live in Gainesville, Florida, with my mom, dad and twin brother, Konnor. I am happy to be accepted to Rotary's incredible exchange program to Brazil. I am so excited to spend my junior year with my new Brazilian family. I enjoy traveling and meeting new people, photography, rock climbing, shooting skeet, hunting, camping, and spending time with friends and family. I am looking forward to being part of Brazilian culture, eating local food and experiencing daily life. I am really excited about the possibility of visiting the Amazon to see rain forest animals in their natural habitat. Brazil is a country with fascinating geography. I expect that my exchange will be a totally different experience than my life in the USA. My friends who have gone away on exchange say that studying abroad is a life-changing event. I am looking forward to having my own experience that I can share with others. I am a visual learner, and I feel like this trip will be a time for me to learn so much every day from the people I meet and the experiences we share - not just with my Brazilian family, but with my Rotary family as well. Obrigado!
