Rotary Exchange Student Speaks

June 6, 2019

Giovanna Costa, a Rotary Youth Exchange Student from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was the featured speaker at a recent Rotary Club of Mount Vernon meeting.  Living with her host Sandy Sinnett, also pictured, and her two children Emily and Ethan, “Gio” was able to learn  a new language and culture, build lasting friendships and become a global citizen.  She reported she has enjoyed her whole experience here, including high school and is grateful to Rotary and Ms. Sinnett for the chance to see the United States.
