Aicha Camara's Japanese still flows freely after a week at home from her Rotary Youth Exchange year in Yokohama, Japan. Today's presentation was more about the personal elements of her experience. When she agreed to the program she had two goals: become a confident public speaker and overcome her fear of roller coasters.  She started right speaking at the meeting of outbound students last July and during her time in Japan she made monthly presentation at her host district meetings, in Japanese. She clearly exceeded that goal.  The roller coast took more time but she road a few world class coaster during her last month in Japan. Aicha plans to work for a year and then pursue a college degree in International Studies, with a minor in Japanese.  Shown below she hugs a school friend and presents a flags from her hosts.
