Danica Loucks traveled to Taiwan as an International Foreign Youth Exchange (IFYE) delegate representing Montana 4-H. Danica spent three months in Taiwan living with 12 different host families. She shared her experiences with the Plevna School students in grades K-12 and Fallon County 4-H Cloverbuds. Students enjoyed learning about Taiwanese customs, craft farms, their language, and many more very interesting facts about Taiwan and Taiwanese people. The students and Cloverbuds even learned and participated in a Taiwanese dance.

Danica graduated in 2013 from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, with a degree in anthropology and a minor in earth and oceanographic science. Danica was a member of 4-H in Ravalli County for ten years. In addition to serving as an IFYE representative to Taiwan this past year, Danica was also an IFYE Ambassador to Finland in 2007.

4-H members and alumni between the ages of 15 and 30 have the opportunity of a lifetime to live and work abroad in the International 4-H Youth Exchange (IFYE) program. IFYE programs enhance the 4-H experience through international, cross-cultural experiences that enable young people to improve their leadership and communication skills, while increasing their international awareness and understanding. Contact your Fallon-Carter Extension Office for more information on the IFYE program and the many opportunities 4-H offers.
