Postcard from Youth Exchange Student Alphan Sekuri

Hello nicest people of Rotary Club of Portland, 

 
This is Alphan Sekuri, your Turkish exchange student from 3 years ago, with greetings from Izmir, Turkey! Since I got back from Portland, a lot has changed. Got through high school and made it to a medical school in Istanbul, which just turned out to be more fun than it actually sounds. 
 
I am really thankful for the exchange experience, it let me explore a lot about what were the other people out of my small bubble in Izmir thought, felt, and did. It was also really important to get to know myself, about who I wanted to be. I’d like to thank you all for giving me that great opportunity. Well, wish I had more space to write. I hope everything is fine. I’d really like to keep in touch. My email is:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

P.S. Bob Dernedde and Cole Mills came and hung out with me in Turkey, so come and visit, it’s a lot of fun! Also, I’d like to do a summer internship in Portland next summer at a clinic. Could anybody help me about that? Thanks.
