Youth Exchange Student, Klaudia Forgacova stops by for an update

 


Recently, The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club enjoyed a presentation by Youth Exchange Student, Klaudia Forgacova.  Klaudia, a graduate of Yulee High School, was sponsored by the club last year while she lived and studied in Liege, Belgium.  Klaudia said the trip fulfilled her long-time dream to immerse herself in another culture and she returned from Belgium speaking the language – French – fluently.  While there, she lived with three different host families in small rural villages near Liege.  She also had the opportunity to travel to England, Italy, Hungary and Latvia.  Her experience helped her decide to pursue an international business degree and she is currently attending Florida State College Jacksonville with the intention of transferring to the University of Florida to further her international studies.  Klaudia closed by saying that she returned from her trip with a deeper understanding that she should let the world mold her rather than try to mold the world.
