Giulia Penzo of Padua, Italy is calling Minden home for the 2021-22 school year. The sixteen year old looks forward to experiencing life in America as a member of the MHS senior class of 2022.
Giulia’s home of Padua is in northern Italy just west of Venice. She lives with her mother, a housekeeper, her father, a surveyor, and her older brother. Spending a year in the United States as an exchange student appeals to her for several reasons.
“I want to learn English and I want to meet people. America is a good place so I want to go,” Giulia said.
