Youth Exchange – the Return Visit from the USA





Our speaker on Wednesday 17 August 2011 was Taylor King who comes from just outside San Diego in California. Taylor is taking part in the second half of a Short Term Youth Exchange Programme organised through Rotary in London and is staying with Robert and Valerie. Taylor spoke about her family, and about the differences in the education system in our two countries. She also spoke about meeting other Youth Exchange students in London from other countries around the world. Taylor also spoke about the differences in public transport systems in the USA and in London. At home there is no Underground tube and so nearly everyone travels by car. When she completes here studies, she hopes to follow a career as a paediatric physiotherapist. Luciana, who had stayed at the Taylor home in California on the first leg of the Exchange was also at the meeting, supported by her parents. She reported that the image of Americans we see here in the movies cannot be relied upon and that she had had a lovely time in the US thanks to Rotary.
