My name is Ashley Eunice and Iím going to Austria!
I am17 and I am
currently attending my senior year at Winter Park High School. I was born
and raised in Orlando, Florida with my family. I have spent my entire life
running, swimming and just having an all around good time under the Florida
sun. I am a very active person. Iíve spent all four years of high school
running track and cross country. Iím one of those crazy people who
deliberately wake up early in the morning or stays after school to run for
miles under the blazing summer sun. I really love it that much.
Iíve been an artist all my life. The times Iím sitting still are the
times when I am drawing. Iím always doodling on the edges of class work
(much to the annoyance or amusement of my teachers) and I am always thinking
of new ideas to express in my art.
I also enjoy writing. I love to create new stories and characters. In
fact, over the past four years, I have written, edited and revised an
enormous story that I one day hope to share with the world. However, I want
to combine my art and my writing to portray the story as a sort of graphic
novel. This has been a dream of mine ever since I first started to read
Manga and watch Anime, way back in middle school.
My ideal of an entertaining story tends to deviate a little from the
average teenage demographic. As an active reader I look for creepy, bizarre
books to read. I have a wide range of musical interests and will pretty much
listen to anything from Lady Gaga to Phantom of The Opera.
I love meeting new people and visiting new places so Iím totally excited
to be going to Austria. Iíve never actually left America before so Iím very
grateful to Rotary for this super-special-awesome opportunity.
