"I was interested in becoming an exchange student, so I started doing research on different exchange programs. When I looked at Rotary I noticed that it was really the only program that would set me up to have the best year I possibly can. I noticed that Rotary was great at preparing you for your exchange before you left, and I also always having your back while you are gone. Because I saw all the support that Rotary has for its exchange students, I knew that it would be the best choice for me."
