FLEX Student of the Month — January 2014

Tsiala Khomasuridze, a World Link student from Georgia, is committed to sharing Georgian culture and traditions with her host community, school, family and friends.  Her commitment is evident in the 25 presentations she gave performing traditional dances and sharing her favorite Georgian recipes and dishes.
She is also committed to volunteer opportunities and enjoys finding new and interesting ways to volunteer in her community.  Most of her time is spent helping in the Rescue Mission where she sorts donated clothing and distributes them to residents in need. She also sorts food and serves meals in a food kitchen. 
Tsiala’s dedication does not stop there; to bring joy to less fortunate children and families she volunteered to decorate cookies and wrap presents for a free toy giveaway at a local church during the holiday season. On Christmas Eve, she packaged and distributed food donations and helped children choose a special gift for Christmas. Thus far, she has served 110 community service hours for a variety of organizations!
Tsiala is also an excellent student and a member of the Key Club, Interact Club, Red Cross Club, and the Future Business Leaders of America. Friends and family say she is a person who finds the positive in every situation. Her local coordinator wrote, “Tsiala appreciates everything about her time in America and recognizes how much others have put into her experience. She exudes joy and enthusiasm for her school, friends, and especially her host family.”
Congratulations, Tsiala!
