Laura Daniel – 2019 Warracknabeal Rotary Exchange Student to Ottersheim bei Landau, Germany
Laura recently presented  the powerpoint that she will use to introduce herself, our club and our country to her host club in Germany when she arrives in January. The comprehensive summary included her family, her interests, Warracknabeal, Australian geography, history, culture, sport, flora & fauna and the projects of our Rotary Club. Lots of pictures brought the presentation to life.  Laura also told us a little about the small village of Ottersheim bei Landau and her first host family. While she has been teaching herself some German, Laura will attend language classes on arrival in Germany. Rotary President Chris Hewitt officially presented Laura with her Exchange jacket, together with a range of small Aussie items to exchange with other students, to adorn their jackets.  Laura spoke with pride about her family, her country and our club. We know she will be a great ambassador and we will be here to support her. Asked whether she had the same feeling about exchange now as she did at the start, Laura replied. “At first I was mainly interested in learning a new language, but now, after learning more about the exchange I’m looking forward to learning so much more about different cultures and meeting people from around the world.”
Beste wunsche und haben eine tolle zeit Laura. (Best wishes and have a great time  Laura)
