Foreign Exchange Program

Peg Chrisman Lakin, IFYE, KS to Thailand, October 1963 - March 1964

 

My IFYE Experience - I stayed with a family that had a three year-old daughter. I learned more from her than anyone else. Her name was "Dawn", and she took my hand when we went for walks. She told me about rocks, butterflies, bugs and flowers. She spoke not a word of English, and I spoke not a word in Thai, but we had a perfect understanding. That is what IFYE is all about!
