The Pros and Cons of Exchange Life

Many people believe their world narrows after a certain age which is true when you lose connection. They forget, however, that if you are courageous enough to try something new, there are limitless opportunities. Two organizations which stand out to me, but are somewhat obscure to the general public, are Toastmasters International and Rotary International. Toastmasters International Let us start with Toastmasters. Well, I am a toastmaster. For most of my life, I had no idea what Toastmasters was. The only thought which popped in my mind was that the Toastmasters organization provided a place for individuals who were Teetotalers and feared speaking in public. Now, let me be perfectly clear: Those reasons alone are fine, and it is quite noble for an organization to accommodate those in need of such support. I was not sure, however, whether it was the place for me.

A sturdy Navajo grandfather, silversmith and revivalist preacher, Domingo lives in a one-room house smaller than a single-car garage in the windswept sagebrush desert near Nageezi, New Mexico.

I understood that I would be able to learn a million things, and at the end of it be a completely different person. Never would I have believed that lifetime in a year even existed. You will reach your highest highs, and lows of your life. It is going to be hard the first couple days but when you truly see all the positives, the negatives just fade away behind you. This exchange has really shaped me into the person I am today due to being able to mature in ways I never thought was possible.

This exchange to me was basically a freedom key to start afresh, figure out who I was and who I wanted to be. You learn to be part of a different culture and end up with friends all over the world.

Throughout my year of involvement with rotary in Canada I now know that I am part of something bigger than myself and I can have really big dreams. I became aware of this when Angela, my third host mum, mentioned to her kids that I had come all the way on a plane to Canada from NZ and I could handle myself. When the kids would question things I did like catching the bus by myself, Angela would remind them I am responsible enough to catch a plane from New Zealand all around the world, I could certainly catch a bus.

I have several reasons why you should not date. The obvious that he would look really bad if he did get sent home. I have had the experiance of being an exchange student to Germany. I have also seen a student get sent home. It not only was the talk of the whole exchange program but it made the teachers, hosts, and students feel bad for having to take such harsh action. It also made them feel guilty for a rule they did not make but had to enforce. It also made the girl here in the states look bad and she was the talk here at home too.
