2017 Exchange Student Maria Clara Chavarri Martinez
My name is Maria Clara Chavarri Martinez. I was born in Lima, Peru. I’m 16 years old and I’m a junior at Wiregrass Ranch High School. I have a brother who is 19 and he is at college. My dad is a professor in a university in Peru and my mom is a civil engineer. I like to run and that’s how I relax because I can see the nature that’s in Florida. I love to read at night before going to bed. And here in USA, I discovered that I love playing the piano! I am taking piano classes at school and also a Rotarian loaned me his keyboard so I play it sometimes in the afternoon. I also enjoy hanging out with the other exchange students and now that I have more friends I love hanging out with them – too! I’m totally in love with my school here and I’m doing good on my grades. I am so thankful with my rotary club and my district in Peru because they gave me the wonderful opportunity of doing this exchange year. Also, I’m thankful for district 6950 and my host club Rotary Club of Wesley Chapel because they have made me feel like they are my second family. I’m so happy to represent my country in this awesome adventure!!!
