Exchange student to share experiences

Sep 19, 2017 @ 7:00 am. - 10:00 am.

Ayn Marie Eastridge, who recently returned from a year in Germany with the Rotary Youth Exchange Program, will speak at the 7 a.m. Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise meeting on Tuesday at the Pioneer Inn. The meeting is open to the public. The $10 fee includes a full breakfast with menu selections. Payment is accepted at the door.

Eastridge, now a senior at Lahainaluna High School, spent her junior year in Germany. This experience “broadened my perspective of the world and gave me a new appreciation and understanding of my culture.” she said. With only a basic understanding of German when she arrived, she was completely fluent within a few months.

Eastridge lived with host families, went to a German school and participated in community activities. Additionally, she had an opportunity to travel throughout Europe with other exchange students.
