The Reston Rotary is proud to sponsor Cosette (Cosi) Bennet from Freedom HS in South Riding to be a Rotary Youth Exchange student, spending a year living in Finland with a host family and attending school. Thank you to the great efforts of Reston Rotary Youth Exchange Coordinator, Pilar Meneses, District 7610 Youth Exchange Chair, Matt Leavitt, and Reston Rotary President Sebastian Coe.

As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, Cosi will spend a year living with host families and attending school. She’ll learn a new way of living and a new language.
As she is learning, she will also be teaching the people she meets about our great country United States of America, our culture, and the projects we support at the Rotary Club of Reston. 
She will also be a young ambassador, helping to bring the world closer together and making some good friends in the process.
