Brooke Svendsen says her year abroad in Denmark as a Rotary Youth Exchange student was an amazing, fantastic experience, one that she now has friends from around the world.
Brooke joined us Wednesday at our meeting where she discussed her journey, one where she left Prince George in August 2018 and returned in July 2019.
She lived in a town called Nykobing Falser (population 16,540) in southern Denmark and lived with three different host families. They took her on trips to Copenhagen and Bornholm. 
Brooke was enrolled in the music/math stream at her school, attending classes from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
As part of her Rotary duties, she went on a trip through Europe with other youth exchange students that included visiting seven countries in 19 days. 
We're thrilled that Brooke had a wonderful year abroad. She was a great ambassador for Prince George and Canada.
