When she's not Scouting, she's mentoring 5th graders, showing them around the school and helping to answer their questions during orientation. Outside of Scouts and being a mentor, Jale does photography, painting, drawing, swimming, and likes to read literature. With family, she spends time in the afternoons going on little adventures or doing other fun activities together. Jale lives a partial vegetarian lifestyle, where she simply tries to avoid eating beef or pork. Jale hopes that this exchange year will teach her about the American culture, and help her to grow as a person while making lifelong friends. Jale would make a wonderful addition to any family! Will you accept Jale into yours today? Arriving in of August 2019
