Gonzalo Delgado is our Rotary Exchange Student for the 2019-2020 school year. He will be arriving this August, and we look forward to meeting him. Here's something Gonzalo wrote about himself so we could get to know him a little:
Hello, everybody! My name is Gonzalo Delgado, and I'm from Venezuela. My family is one of the most important treasures in my life! I have a big family and I really love all of them!
I will be pleased to share our traditions with you and what it's like to be a good Venezuelan! My other family is my schoolmates; I'm very happy because I will graduate this year!
Venezuela is such a beautiful country in the north of South America, and it capital is Caracas. We have awesome places to visit like the Angel Fall, which is the highest water fall in the world. It's an honour for me to be a representative of my country and to share with all of you my culture and customs! We love arepas (a delicious dish from my country) and we also love our music, and I will do my best to share it with you.
I enjoy playing the Cuatro, the most popular instrument in Venezuela! I will always be grateful to rotary for giving me this opportunity. Here in Venezuela, I'm part of Interact; my interact is called Valle de Santiago. I've learned to be a better person, and I love to help people in my community!
I'm so excited for this year; I can't wait to pass the best year of my life in Sun Prairie! Thank you all for giving me this opportunity!
