Rotary Youth Exchange 2015 The Journey Begins

At 6:15 AM, Host parents, Keith and Laura Royle got in their car and headed to Miami International Airport. No, they were not going on a vacation, they were embarking on a new adventure together as Host parents. Around 7:00 AM, we arrived at the International Gate. Soon the rest of the members from Rotary of Coconut Creek arrived and we all waited what seemed forever for the special individual to get through Customs, with colorful balloons and a big welcome sign. Then a young lady with the most beautiful smile emerged from the steel and glass doors. In one hand a guitar and the other luggage. Our Youth Exchange Student had arrived safely! Juliana (Aya) Anzai, from Brazil is here as an ambassador for her country and will spend her time not only learning about life in the US but will also share with us her culture and language. She will have the opportunity to meet other Youth Exchange Students during her stay. We are extremely proud of Keith and Laura for opening up their homes and their heart and giving the Club the opportunity to be a part of what others who have walked in their shoes before call a life changing experience.
