Malysha and TaeWonGood-Bye to Tae-Won and Welcome Home to Malysha!  Today we celebrated our time with Tae-Won by sharing special memories of him and his stay in America.  He will go home a changed man.  Malysha shared a wonderful presentation with us about her experience in Taiwan.  Her topics included the culture, the families she had, language, housing, school, ballroom dancing, religion, her experience teaching children, site seeing, and how she got to meet a real prince.  The three main things she learned were: 1) take advantage of every day, 2) try new things, and 3) it’s okay to get lost and not understand some things.  She was very grateful to our Rotary club for sponsoring this life-changing experience that will be with her for the rest of her life.  We are sad to see Tae-Won go, but very happy that both students succeeded in their adventure of making this world a little smaller by getting to know a very different culture and make friends around the planet.  Thank you to both of them for sharing a piece of themselves with the Rotary family.

A video will be available soon that explains Malysha’s experience, so watch for that.

Rotary Gathering 6/1/16

Tae-Won!  What a lovely speech our exchange student from South Korea gave today!  He highlighted his TaeWonachievements including developing language skills, improving relationship building and achieving 1st at State for his Solo Ensemble.  Great job Tae-Won!

Tae-Won also shared with us his gratitude to our Rotary Club, especially the Rotarians who have hosted him–Cermin, Mielke and Murtaugh families.  He also helped us understand what we could do to improve our program for future students.

His plan for the future is to attend University in Singapore, studying International Business.  Then he would like to return to the USA to get his Master’s Degree.  In the very near future he will be taking a trip out east with all the other Rotary exchange students, returning at the end of June for a short time before he takes his long trip back home.

Thank you Tae-Won for showing our club your wonderful sense of humor, your fantastic smile, and you awesome personality!  It has been great to get to know you and hopefully you will come back to visit our club when you return to the USA.
