Exchanging Students, Impacting Lives!

Wellsboro Rotary Exchange students visit Home Page

 

by Morgan Koziar - March 27, 2014

In today’s story, Home Page had the opportunity to speak with two foreign exchange students from the Rotary Foreign Exchange Program. Each year the Rotary selects two foreign candidates to come and take a year-long journey in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. The students join the community in many different events. Each Thursday, the students are required to attend the Rotary Luncheon at the Penn Wells Hotel and discuss their progress and experiences here in the United States. The students join the school system and have to participate in various activities – such as learning a new language, attending school, living with a host family, and facing the struggles of being away from home.

First, we interviewed Quinton Curnier, who journeyed all the way from France. He was excited to talk to us about his experiences here in the United States. Quinton enjoys playing basketball, track, and hanging out with his American family.

Next, we interviewed Fabianna Chacon-Rivas, who traveled through the Rotary program from Venezuela. Fabi is trying her best to adjust to to the cold weather that we have been experiencing. She enjoys hanging out with friends, playing basketball, track, and skiing. The government in Venezuela is in a period of turmoil, making it difficult for Fabi to communicate with her family. However, she mentioned in the interview, “the foreign exchange program will impact my life and provide lasting memories that I will be able to share with my family.”

For more information on how you can contribute to the Rotary program (or how you can host a foreign exchange student,) you can contact Tim McBride at 570-724-5539 or log on to www.exchangestudent.org.
