Why Is Exchange So Important to Rotary?

I left home to live my dream, go to a different country, meet new people and live with different families, but I never thought that those families could become more than a host family. All the people that I met during my exchange were incredible. This year literally changed my life. It helped me discover who I really am. All the experiences that I went through this year will always be in my heart.
I just want to say thank you to everyone who was with me this year and thanks Rotary for making the exchange possible.
The time flew by fast, now I'm back in Colombia, sharing all my amazing experiences that feel they just happened yesterday.

Slovakian Exchange Student Juraj presented his country to our club recently. Juraj has had quite the impact on students at West Aurora High School as he had the opportunity to give a speech during the induction of the National Honor Society. Click on the link below to see his speech. Such incredible words, and this is why our club supports the Rotary Youth Exchange.
