Giulia Martinoli said she did not know what to expect when she first left Italy and arrived in the United States as part of the Rotary Internationalâ€™s Youth Exchange Program last July â€” she just knew she had finally achieved a childhood dream.
â€śI was happy to come here because it was my dream when I was little,â€ť Martinoli said. â€śI have always wanted to see this country. At first my mom was kind of a little afraid because she knew she was going to miss me, and in the beginning my grandparents told me I was crazy because I didnâ€™t know anyone here, but they are happy now.â€ť
