To every member of the Tumwater Rotary, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without each of  you, this year would not have been possible. I want you to know that because of your generosity and kindness, you have changed my life forever, in the most deep sense.  Not only did you help me to create lifelong relationships with people from all over the globe, you have completely changed the path of my future, and created a deeply positive impact in me that I will carry every single day for the rest of my life.  I would also like to say, and I cannot stress this enough, that you, Tumwater Rotary club, are changing the world, and I am just one example of proof.  Every student you choose to sponsor for an exchange year is in turn making connections that are changing the world, and you are the fuel to that fire.  If you take anything away form my presentation, I hope it is this.
