By Alessa Strelecki
Distinguished Young Woman of Iowa for 2011
This summer I will be studying abroad in Uganda in Africa before I make the trek back down to Mobile as a has-been!
Traveling is extremely important to me; I want to see the entire world.
Here are the top five places I want to visit!
Spain: I plan to study abroad here as well before I am in college. I have taken Spanish since I was in first grade and love the language and culture. I’d specifically love to see Granada.
Australia: Please get me to the Great Barrier Reef! Or anywhere in Australia for that matter.
Poland: My ancestors came from Poland, so I would love to see the country.
Italy: Pizza and pasta and bread sticks! Enough said.
Thailand: Wouldn’t that just be awesome?
Where do you want to go?
