Pre-departure Orientation

I just returned from my AFS pre-departure orientation. It was very interesting and a lot of the information was very important, but I have to say my favorite part was simply the people who attended. Returnees, students on exchange and students like myself who have yet to leave all got to communicate with each other and share information and stories. It was simply amazing to meet students from every corner of the world. I learned traditional Indonesian dance and got advice from Belgian exchange students. Over-all, it was an amazing experience and it convinced me more than ever the importance of youth exchange.
