2019 RYE Outbound to Norway - Alicia


Trish Lynch introduced Alicia, the RC Karrinyup 2019 Rotary Youth Exchange Outbound student to Norway. 

17 year old Alicia from Warwick Senior High School leaves for Norway on Saturday. She was inspired to apply for Rotary Youth Exchange by two of our former RYE Inbound students, Hannah from Germany and Ona from Spain, both of whom attended Warwick Senior High School.

Alicia is looking forward to broadening her perspective by moving outside her comfort zone and experiencing life and schooling in a different culture.  President Robyn presented her with the coveted Australian blazer, as she represents her State and her country throughout her exchange year, although it was remarked that she is going to need a lot more than a blazer for Norway!

Alicia thanked the Rotary Club of Karrinyup for sponsoring her and also her parents for supporting her in this venture.

Karrinyup Rotary wishes Alicia all the very best for her adventure and we look forward to hearing regular updates about her wonderful experiences. 

The club will soon call for nominations for Rotary Youth Exchange 2020.
