Informative and interesting presentations by our 3 rebound Youth Exchange students at our Aug. 21st meeting opened our Imageeyes to the reality of the students' experiences and the impact on their lives. Having spent a year overseas, the students shown in the photo, Brittany Blackmore, Julie Nish, and Brenda Kollenbrander, entertained club members, family, and friends with accounts of their experiences of life in countries with completely different cultures and languages.
All were immersed in the cultures of their host countries and clearly came home with a full understanding and appreciation of very different life styles. Brittany in India, Brenda in Indonesia, and Julie in Taiwan, all described adapting to different foods, languages, customs, and education systems during their year overseas as well as relating the exotic experiences as they travelled with host families and with other exchange students.
