Davit, a States’ 4-H placed Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) student from Georgia, always has a positive attitude and smile for everyone around him. He is eager to learn and proudly represents his home country.  Davit has reached 700 community members through 28 International Education Week presentations about Georgia. During the presentations he enchanted his audiences by singing a national song in Georgian.

Volunteering and Theater

Davit is active in his local 4-H club where he took on leadership roles as a member of the Junior Council.  He has already completed 131 hours of community service.  Davit comments that he loves how 4-H involves “every kind of people from farmers to exchange students.” 

Davit also participated in his high school’s musical in the fall and school play in the spring, and is a member of the Forensics team. He volunteered backstage for a play at the local library where he put his new stage knowledge to use by working with local kids. Through hours of hard work and dedication he gained many new friends and a newfound joy of being on stage.

Host Family Bonds

Davit has created a very strong bond with his host family, and says they are the “best host family.” He shares his culture with them through long conversations over home cooked meals. Davit says that while he’s been on program he’s become more accepting, flexible, open and friendly, and now sees things from multiple perspectives. He is eager to share the experiences he’s had and the values he’s learned when he returns home to Georgia. Davit is a positive role model for all who meet him.
