Okay so my last post was mainly just about fundraising, so I figure I should probably include more information about myself. My name is Anne Hallett, but I prefer to be called Annie. I am 16 years old and I live in Tucson, Arizona. I love to read, write, and do photography. I also really love to travel when I get a chance. I have three siblings, and I am the oldest. One of the reasons I became interested in foreign exchange is that a few years ago I got a chance to visit Europe for a little while during summer vacation. We visited England, France, and Italy for a few days each, and during that time I really fell in love with Italy. Just today I got an email saying that I was accepted by AFS Italy, and I'm so happy! Even before that though I had wanted to do foreign exchange, but at that time I really didn't know where I wanted to go. My short trip to Europe just managed to finalize my decision. Thanks for reading!
