Our exchange student Eva, unfazed by the failure of computer technology recounted some of the details of what had been an amazing twelve months. In that time she had travelled widely across New Zealand in both main islands. She had taken part in many Rotary activities including RYPEN and assisting with the raising of $5,500 for the emergency boxes. She had engaged in many school activities including the school production of Young Frankenstein as well as making many friends on the way.

Paying tribute to her three host families Eva recounted how they had welcomed her so openly into their families and taken such wonderful care of her. This year had been the best year of her life and she was certain that it had changed her life in a really positive way. Common to many of our exchange students, Eva clearly understood that she had had the opportunity to do more and see more than most of her Kiwi friends and she thanked Rotary for that.
