On July 27th, our club's outbound exchange student, Emma Ruff, presented about her upcoming exchange to Belgium.  Her presentation was full of interesting facts (did you know Belgium is smaller than Vancouver Island, or that Belgium's population is about 100x more dense than Canada's?), and, as one Rotarian put it after the meeting, "a wicked sense of humour."
Emma is 15 years old, and recently completed the 10th grade at Peace Wapiti Academy.  She moved to Alberta from New Brunswick when she was only a year old and has lived here ever since with her parents and younger sister. 
She is an active member of Grande Prairie Interact Club, enjoys being active, and has been involved with wrestling, basketball, and badminton.  She plays the bass clarinet in her high school band.  She also loves reading, painting, and drawing. She loves traveling and trying new things (foods, activities, etc.).  Spending time with family and friends, and being involved in her community is very important to her.
If you would like to wish Emma luck on her journey, feel free to attend her going away party:
