I am Presley Baesler, a future outbound for the year 2019-2020. I am from Lexington, Kentucky and moved to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida with my family at the age of seven. My family and I enjoy going to the beach, going on the boat, and going out to see movies together. I dance on a competitive team in Ponte Vedra with a local studio, and I enjoy dancing very much. In my free time, I love to listen to music and spend time with my friends. At school, I am apart of several clubs including the Environmental Club, Younglife, and the Feminist Club. I have taken three years of Spanish, and I study very hard when it comes to school in order to succeed. I decided to apply to become an exchange student through Rotary because I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people and going new places. I believe the experience will help me grow myself and learn more about the lives of others. I have always had a passion for traveling and exploring new ways of life, so this opportunity jumped out at me. I hope to learn a lot about myself, learn a lot about Brazilian culture, and to understand a new language. I also hope to come back home a more well-rounded, mature, and open-minded person after my exchange. I am very excited about this coming year in Brazil, and can’t wait for all of the experiences to come.
