Hello! Welcome back to my channel! This video is different from the rest of my videos. This is sorta a complication of my snapchat and some photos that I took over the course of my exchange year. I’m leaving 2 months early. I was originally supposed to stay until June. Also I edited all of this 3 weeks before I left. So this is just a brief video. I hope you enjoy and I inspire you to become an Exchange student. It was honestly the best months of my life. Don’t forget to like and subscribe.

My name is Evelyne and I'm a foreign exchange student from Switzerland. Switzerland is a little Country in the middle of Europe with 8 million people. I live there in a little village called Brunnen on the lake of Lucerne, surrounded by mountains. I decided to go on an adventure without my family, friends and come to a new country with a new language, culture, and people. Imagine yourself starting a whole new life! Right now I’m in the middle of this adventure and I want to share my experience of being abroad for a year. My dream to make an exchange year started around two and a half years ago when my friend applied for an exchange year to Ecuador. She talked about what a beautiful experience it would be. She explained to me how the Rotary exchange program works and how I can apply for it. After hearing about such a great opportunity, nobody could stop me anymore. My parents weren’t as thrilled as me. Based off of their experiences abroad, they told me that there would be many challenges. But I took this risks and started all the paper work rotary needed for going to an exchange year on my own. The process of becoming an exchange student was a lot of work but definitely worth it. After waiting two years, I could finally start my exchange year. It was harder than I expected to say “Goodbye” to my friends and family. You never know what could happen in the span of a year. I cried a lot when I had to say goodbye to my grandparents. My grandfather is eighty-nine and I am really close to him. He was always there for me and gave me a lot of advice, more than my parents at times. Furthermore, most of my friends in Switzerland are graduating this year and going to college. I don’t know when I will see them next. It made me sad because I love my class a lot in Switzerland. However, I was so excited to leave my village behind me and see the other side of the world. I came to Coronado on my own. No one here in America knew exactly who I was! I moved into a house with people who were called my new family although I didn’t know them yet. It at first felt like a vacation, but also surreal at the same time. I saw so many things I’ve never seen before and all days was a new adventure. But after around two and a half weeks, it started becoming real and I really started missing my family and friends. I was homesick. I’ve never felt like that before. Sometimes I wanted to share a funny story or needed advice, but I didn't know who to ask because my family and friends at home don't know my friends here in America, and the people in America didn't really know me. But it was already really helpful just hearing the voices of my friends and family at home over skype. It was a challenge making good friends. It sounds weird because normally you don't "need" to make friends because you already have them or you have at least your family, but I had nothing really at first! I felt really awkward at times asking people to do things together because I didn’t really know them and they already had other friends. Furthermore, I couldn't really express myself in English and couldn't understand everything which made everything so much more difficult. Sometimes I just felt alienated and this made me homesick because I was not used to this kind of situation. But then I realized that it just needed time because friendships grow. Friendship doesn’t come from nothing, it needs time and energy: time to trust, to like, to respect, and to have fun with each other. While getting to know people, I learned to value the little things in life; such as a smile, a good conversation, a hug, a friend who helped me with homework and a lot of other little things. I realized that this was the key to my happiness. Now 6 Months later I’m looking back to this point and I’m so proud that I made it through this time. I have now the best friends I can ask for and three wonderful host families who are always there for me. I can call Coronado my second home because I have now a new life here. Another wonderful thing I’ve experienced is being in a completely different climate zone. In Switzerland, I’m used to going skiing in the winter, swimming in the lake in the summer, watching movies on rainy days, going into the forest or going hiking in the mountains. But here in Coronado, we don’t have mountains or lakes. It’s always the most beautiful weather and you can do whatever you want in summer and winter. I felt in love with the ocean. Hearing the sound of the waves and birds and feeling the breeze on the beach makes the whole atmosphere ethereal and peaceful. I am so truly thankful for making this exchange year. It has changed me forever. As an exchange student we learn a different language, culture, we learn other traditions and we learn about the whole world. We learn to adapt to our situations and to be responsible. We learn to be respectful and mindful. But most of all, we learn how to live. Thank you Rotary

Heyy, This video is from my second trip with Belo Brasil. We went to Amazonia for 10 days. We visited Indigenous colonies, bought their authentic clothing and played football with them. we also held sloths, anaconda and alligators. I finally visited my dream place - Amazonia, met awesome people and made new friends. Thank you all for making this trip the best of my life.

Hi guys, As I said in the video, this is for all of you who have kept up with my exchange student videos and are curious about what happened. I think it's super important for me to go on record and tell my story but also let everyone know that I still think Rotary Youth Exchange is a great program. I had some amazing times in Italy but the situation just wasn't right for me at this point in my life. I hope you all take this video for what it is and maybe it could possibly help someone down the road. I only made this video to help other exchange students and be there for someone, anyone, even one person. When I was at my lowest point in Italy, I would have loved to see a video like this to know that I wasn't alone. Take what you want from it but regardless, it's important to talk openly about exchange. If you have any questions feel free to message my email or facebook. Thank you for being so lovely and understanding, xoxo -Cal.

Hello! This is the 50th and Final Vlog documenting my life as an exchange student in Japan. I first want to thank you all who have been following my vlogs since the beginning and those of you who only recently started watching my videos and showing interest towards them. I'm so glad that I was able to upload all my videos about Japan (albeit a bit late, a year after exchange isn't too long right?) and I hope they prove useful to those planning to study abroad or those purely interest in the concept of exchange. I encourage you all to study abroad or travel to if you are able to, the world is a huge place and there's so many sights to see, people to meet, and experiences to experience. Once again, thank you. Feel free to ask any questions if you may have any, it has been a fun journey and I am glad that I was able to share it all with you.

La France est le meilleur pays pour faire un échange! -Video translation- Only a few days ago I realised what 'an exchange year coming to an end' really means, leaving my new families, my school, my habits acquired, my best friends, my crushes. It means parting ways with exchange students who have been the cause of many of my best moments and experiences, my widened taste buds and wild side. During the year, they became the coolest brothers and sisters from all 7 continents. We've had fun together, argued, shared cultures, expanded our global horizons and loved. We've travelled to different cities to visit each other, mingled with strangers in the streets, taken random selfies with random people, met celebrities and always found the time and money for food. They are the real reason behind the weight gain. "An exchange year coming to an end" means all that coming to an end as well. I'm fighting tears brought by the thought of saying goodbye to people who were once just names on a sheet paper. It seems like only yesterday when my exchange year began. I remember vividly my first impressions of France. A foreign country then, but now my other place called home. For the moments we have shared, her beautiful landscape I have explored, her language I have learnt and culture I have adopted for the past 11 months, I will not forget, and this is not goodbye. I will soon have to leave the things I was now used to doing to get back to those I was used to not doing anymore, and find a way to balance the two worlds that I now live in. Reflecting on the way my life has changed and the person I have become, I realise that a lot has happened this year. This is my dream come true, my success story. I haven't left as yet but I'm looking forward to the day I will come back to visit. As for now, I am promising to keep all the memories close to my heart.

Heyy! My name is Amálie Malečková and I am from the Czech Republic. I am an exchange student in Brazil and I want to show you my first trip with Belo Brasil. We spent one month traveling the coast of Brazil and we visited a lot of places. For example Jericoacoara, Fortaleza, Recife, Salvador or Rio de Janeiro. Even though I was sick, it was the best month of my life. I am so thankful for my parents, friends and monitors from Belo Brasil for making this trip that awesome. Love you all, hope you will enjoy the video. Thank you.

Hey guys! Here are my suggestions when it comes to gifts for your host family. I didn't mention this in the video, but I also suggest that you reach out to your host family(s) and see if there is anything specific they would like. I didn't really talk about food, but it can be an option. Just make sure you look into the laws in both your country and your host country about what foods can be brought in and out(as a general rule: NO fruits and vegetables). First Night Questions for you and your host family: http://yeoresources.org/first_night_questions.htm If anyone has any other ideas, please share them in the comments! ~Lydia :) Shoot me a message on Instagram if you have any questions! Instagram: @lydiarollo FAQS: How old are you? 19 What program did you go on exchange with? Rotary International Where did you go on exchange? France('15-'16) & Brazil(summer '17)

After my exchange year in Utah, I went on the best trip of my life with 38 exchange students from all over the world. I am so glad to call them my best friends. I can't wait to see all of them again. We stopped in 12 cities in the US. We probably spent more than 100 hours in the train but it was worth it!! Thank you Rotary for everything.

20 years ago, I arrived in Sweden as a wide eyed 18 year old. This was my first major travel experience, and I was scared out of my mind. I'd never been away from home, and I certainly didn't speak any Swedish. Right away however, I was in good hands. I couldn't have asked for better host families, friends and school. My year abroad opened my eyes to a world outside of Boulder, and I loved every second of my experience.
