Welcome: My name is Ella and I am currently an exchange student from Colorado in the United states living in Harare Zimbabwe, When I began the process of becoming an exchange student I would've never imagined that only 10 months from that time I would be living in Zimbabwe but here I am. I will be spending a year abroad here through Rotary representing the United States. On this journey I hope to learn a new language, gain a new perspective, grow as a person and make life long friends from around the world. When I went to the interview process I was much more quite and reserved and after I was accepted and went through the camps I have already seen myself become more confident and outgoing and seeing that progress already is what has inspired me even more to do this exchange. Before I came I had seen such a growth and I was still in the United States and as scary as it is I know when I come back I will be a different person than the one who stepped foot on the plane to Zimbabwe. Here you can follow along with my adventures as I travel and adapt to the life style in Zimbabwe!
