Testimonials from YEP students


Charlotte Bastin (Inbound 2011-2012)

Hello, My name is Charlotte Bastin. I’m from Belgium and I just turned 20 years old. I finished my senior year and then I left my country for a year in Australia in 2011-2012. I went to the Glennie School in Toowoomba. I stayed with three families in Toowoomba. I enjoyed my exchange very much. Now I’m at University. I’m studying international cooperation so that I can work in NGO and keep travelling.




Andréa Caldas Costa de Sá (Inbound 2009-2010)

Hello, My name is Andréa Caldas Costa de Sá and I’m 21 years old. I’m from Brazil and I was on exchange in Australia for a year from 2009 to 2010. I always wanted to travel to a different place and to improve my English, so I started thinking about Australia because it’s such a beautiful country with so much to see. I went to Toowoomba in Queensland on exchange when I was in Year 12 and I finished school there at St Ursula’s College. I stayed with three Rotary families and I can say I couldn’t ask for better families to be with because they made me feel so comfortable with them. Australia will always be my second home. My year overseas made me a more confident person. Now I am at University in my second year of Medicine and I am still involved with Rotary as a member of the committee of ROTEX in my District.
