ImageGeorgina Hargreaves, 15, was selected by the Rotary Club of Vancouver Sunrise to be the club's outbound student in its Youth Exchange program, and is scheduled to go abroad for the school year that starts in August 2013. Georgina lives in Vancouver's West End neighbourhood with her mother, Patricia, and her grandmother.

Georgina is currently a Grade 10 student at King George Secondary School, also in the West End. She will be going to Sweden for her year abroad, living with Rotary families, learning to speak Swedish, going to high school, and meeting many new friends. She will act as an ambassador for Canada, telling Rotary clubs, school friends and others about life in Vancouver. When she returns home in 2014, she will tell Rotary clubs here, plus her friends and others, all she has seen, heard and experienced in Sweden.
