Winnie Lee from Taoyayn City, Taiwan
The Humble Rotary Club is proud to host   Winnie Lee a Rotary youth Exchange Student from Taiwan for the school year 2015-2016.  Winnie traveled all the way from Taipei, Taiwan, non-stop, arriving in Houston of August 14th.  She is a young lady, only 16 who was brave enough to leave her family and friends to come to the United States for one year to learn our language and our culture.
The beauty of Rotary Youth Exchange is that the students always have a host family and a Rotary counselor to help them as they grow and learn our customs, language and our culture.  Susan Brodbeck, Youth Exchange Officer for The Rotary Club of Humble, will be Winnie’s Rotary Counselor for the year she is here.  During her year here in Kingwood she will attend Kingwood Park High School and live with 2-3 different host families.  She currently is hosted by Janel and Mike O’Shea and interestingly their son, Tyler, is in Germany on a Long Term Rotary Youth Exchange.
Winnie, just turned 16, and has two brothers; one older who is now studying in Boston and a younger brother back in Taiwan.  Her Dad owns a catering business and her Mom is an Owner of Joy Studio (Handmade leather products) and both are Rotarians. 
Winnie’s interests and hobbies are watching Korean drama, music, photography, fashion design.  She is interested in movie stars and human interest stories.  Winnie is very fashion conscious and always is very thoughtful and polite.           
She has traveled to Japan before her trip to the United States.  One of her goals for this year is to become more independent and of course become proficient in English, however her English is very, very good even at the early part of her Exchange.
