Rotary in Motion
Benefits of a Rotary Youth Exchange
 
On the first day of her Rotary Youth Exchange orientation in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, Marie Tornquist recalls being confused about the nationality of her country officer. Though the officer was living in the United States as an American, she continued to identify with the Brazilian culture. Tornquist's own experience quickly taught her how Rotary Youth Exchange, and the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in your host's culture, allows you to become a global citizen. Read about her experience in our blog, Rotary Voices.
