Bonjour! Hello! My name is Sabrina Fridschtein, I am 15 years old, and I live in Weston, Florida. I am originally from Brazil but have been living in the United States for three years now. I am fluent in English, Portuguese, and will hopefully be fluent in French as well! I love learning new languages and immersing myself into new cultures. Learning languages is almost like a hobby to me, not only am I learning French, but I’m also currently learning American Sign Language, Spanish, and Korean. I am currently a sophomore at Cypress Bay High School and am heavily involved in my school’s French Club. I will be attending a competition representing my French class in the speaking category soon, which means that a judge will ask me a question in French, and I will have to give a minimum three-minute answer in French, I am very nervous, but also very confident. I have always loved the French language and am incredibly grateful for this opportunity Rotary has granted me of living abroad in my dream country. Ever since I was little, I have always wanted to help people, and for the longest time, my dream has been to become a doctor. I am sure that by learning French I would be able to help many people all around the world and maybe make a difference. I have previously lived in Brazil, Switzerland, and Boston so I have learned to quickly adapt to new environments and learn from their diverse cultures. So I am confident that this year abroad will be amazing.
