Bonjour! My name is Kaitlyn and I will be spending my sophomore year of high school in France! I am fifteen years old and currently a freshman at Centennial High School in Roswell, Georgia, where I have lived my entire life. I live with my mom, dad, three sisters, and two cats. Outside of schoolwork, I am an active member of my school’s Interact club and Model United Nations team, in both of which I have won awards! I also do Irish dance and play the piano and guitar. In my spare time, I like to paint, read, and learn French! I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to live in France for an entire year, and I cannot wait to become fluent in a second language and make international friends. I have aspired to be an exchange student ever since the sixth grade because I want to be a diplomat and help the world at an international level when I am older. Even though I am going to miss my friends and family while I am away, I am anxiously awaiting this opportunity to get out of my comfort zone. Travel has always been a large part of my life, and I have always felt more at home in a foreign city than my hometown. When I come back to the United States after my exchange, I hope to have better French skills, new amazing lifelong connections, and a special respect for the world and its different cultures. I cannot wait to see what these next few years of my life have in store for me!
