I can't believe that it is already my FIFTH monthly report! Absolutely crazy how fast time has flown. My exchange is almost half over! I have a mixture of feelings of accomplishment and anxiousness that the best year of my life is half over! 


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years in Canada! I Heard it was way too warm! And it was here too, on Christmas we went hiking and I was in a TSHIRT! We took a family photo and you can spot the Canadian too easily. My host family has winter jackets and vests on and the Canuck is standing there in a tshirt- feels like spring eh?

I received the card from Rotary and that was so nice to hear from everybody! I hope everybody had a lovely holiday, Christmas and New Years! Mine was full of delicious food, wonderful chocolate, and breathtaking mountains! 

I'd like to thank all of Rotary for all of the support I have received through my whole Rotary Youth Exchange experience. I am so thankful to have had this opportunity to travel and learn. I'm currently living my dream and enjoying every second I promise you! I am totally in love with Europe and Switzerland and have taken it all in. Thank you all for giving me this amazing chance! 

If one of you could please forward this part to Rotary it would be greatly appreciated! 

Ich hoffe eure Weihnachten wärt ganz schön mit Familie und Freunde. Gutes neues Jahr! Ich werde euch in ein halbes Jahr sehen! Bis dann!

Liebe Grüsse,
