Add a Brazilian Flavor to Your Home
By Torey, Jeff and Tully Worron
Meet Estefania Orpheu Pinheiro de Castro, a 17-year-old Brazilian foreign exchange student attending Lakewood HS and currently living with LWC Member Torey Worron. Estefania (Este) is part of the Lakewood/ Rocky River Foreign Youth Exchange Program via the Lakewood/Rocky River Rotary Club and is looking for 1 or 2 additional host families to stay with while she completes her junior year at LHS.
Este, is a tremendous young lady who speaks good English in addition to her native language of Portuguese. She is a terrific student who is kind, funny, and a talented singer who plays the guitar and ukulele. Needless to say, she has been a wonderful addition to our family. https://www.rotarydistrict6630.org/sitepage/host-family
While we would love to host her for her entire stay, the Rotary program is looking for students to spend time with multiple families while here US and Lakewood in order to provide them with as many different experiences and perspectives as possible during their stay.
Currently, Este is slated to stay with us through the holiday season and join another family or two for the remainder of the second semester and into the early days of June. So, if you are interested in learning more about Este, and how you can add a bit of Brazilian flavor to you and your family, please contact Torey Worron at 216-272-1678 or her Rotary contact Chris Arnold at 216-375-3338 or 440-892-3630. Also, Marjorie Corrigan is the President of the Lakewood/Rocky River rotary and she would be happy to talk with you as well. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s a very rewarding experience. We promise!
Sincerely… Torey, Jeff and Tully Worron
