Meet Pauline of Belgium

Personal Profile of a Rotary Foreign Exchange Student

 

by Johanna Vogt - May 15, 2019

Pauline Berberof first came to Wellsboro, PA in August of 2018 to begin a new adventure as a Rotary Exchange Student. Her step-mom, who was also involved with the Rotary Club and the exchange program, encouraged Pauline to look into the Rotary Youth Exchange Program near the end of Pauline’s senior year of high school. After Pauline looked into the program, she was extremely interested and then became involved with a Rotary Club in her town. She started applying to become an exchange student, and got her first choice, America!

On today’s broadcast, Pauline explained how when she first arrived in the States, she felt scared and was surprised at how small the town of Wellsboro was. After she met with her host family and started to discover Wellsboro, she fell in love with it and her new life as a Rotary Exchange Student. Pauline has had many different opportunities to travel with other Rotary Exchange Students every month, and also with her host families all over the country.

Pauline encouraged the people interested in becoming an exchange student to go for it! She stated, “Don’t be too scared; it’s an amazing experience …it’s one of the best things that could happen for them.”

The Home Page Staff would like to thank Pauline and let her know that we are praying for her, and it has been an absolute honor to have her as an exchange student here in Wellsboro, PA. We wish you the very best Pauline!
