My Bio

Merhaba! I am Delaney and I will be spending my Junior year of high school in Turkey! I am sixteen years old and enrolled in Pompano Beach High in Florida, where I have lived all my life. I come from a Christian home and live with my mom, dad, little sister, little brother, three dogs, and a lizard. I take almost all honors or AP classes. My favorite being AP World History, Mandarin 2, and English 2 Honors. Aside from school, I actively participate in two clubs: Improv and First Priority. When I’m free, I love to read, write, and play games with my friends or family. I have won a few competitions for writing, one of which being the DAR Essay competition. For the past five years or so I have been working on three books, one of which is up to seventy thousand words! Writing, language, and history are my passions and I’ve always wanted to do something with them. I am so excited to go live in Turkey for a year! I will be able to learn so much! It will be like I’m living in a constant state of inspiration. I know I will have several challenges to overcome, but I am ready. I want all of the new experiences, the good and the bad. I want to grow more as a person. I want to open my mind up even more to the world, and I want to be able to write about it all. I want the inspiration, the struggle, and the experience. When I return after Exchange I hope to be bilingual, have new connections, help others, and gain a newfound respect for the world. I am eager to see what the next few years of my life will bring.
