World in her hands K OConnor

Kaitlyn O’Connor has been selected for next year’s Rotary Youth Exchange Program and is madly organising herself, despite not yet knowing which country she will be sent to.

“It’s really exciting,” Kaitlyn said. “My parents have already said my sister will be getting my room while I’m away,” she joked.

The Margaret River Senior High School student was selected to represent her state through the Margaret River Rotary Club after interviews in Perth determined she was open minded and strong enough to live somewhere foreign for 12 months.

She could be going anywhere in the world but suspects it will likely be somewhere in Asia or South America.
