It has hardly dawned on me until now, room halfway torn apart and cramming in as much time as i can to see friends and be with family that I will be leaving to Finland for a year. In TWO days! Rotary has given me along with many others such an amazing opportunity that I am extremely grateful for, not to sound all Hallmark or anything, but this really is going to be a life changing experience and I can't wait. I will be staying with the Nieminen family is Vaasa, with my mom, dad, two brothers, and sister, and their dog Pate! Upon arrival I will go to a week long language camp (I will be learning Finnish, and Swedish. My school speaks Swedish, while my family speaks Finnish!). After the language my family will pick me up and two days after that I start school. Can't wait!
