Hi! My name is Ellie [hidden text] and I am so excited to be an exchange student to the Czech Republic for the 2014-2015 school year. I am 16 years old and am from [hidden text], Ohio. I attend an all girls school in Columbus. I have one younger brother and he is 12 years old. Travel is a really big interest of mine as well as learning about new languages and cultures. I am so happy to have the opportunity to live for a year in a totally new culture! I have previously done a short term Rotary Youth Exchange to Italy for four weeks last summer. Both the experience of hosting exchange students and being in Italy on a short term exchange inspired me to consider a long term exchange. In addition to travel, I am very interested in studio arts. I especially love painting and ceramics but really enjoy anything that involves creativity. Finally, I really like to run or swim in my free time.
