Amelia Verlint (Brazil Youth Exchange Student) | Rotary Club of SimcoeOn Tuesday, 15 October, our club welcomed Amelia Verlint to a club zoom gathering to tell us about her recent outbound exchange visit to CafeLandia, Sao Paolo, Brazil.
In Sept 2019, Amelia ventured off to Brazil and returned in March the following year. Hers was an experience somewhat different that the traditional exchange inasmuch as the trip was shortened due to the pandemic. Nonetheless, her presentation highlighted what could only be described as a unique and life-building experience. Amelia proved to be a fine representative of her family, friends, Rotary and Canada.
On behalf of the our Club, Gail Catherwood thanked Amelia for a great picture-laden presentation of a truly wonderful life experience, noting that Amelia had clearly focussed on people over places as a priority during her Rotary exchange.
