Her first host family will be Jennifer & Marius Pacioianu, and Yana Ross will be her Rotarian Counselor. We still need one or two more host families. Sophie is an award winning athlete in sports acrobatics, a competitive gymnastic discipline performed in pairs with acrobatic moves, dance and tumbling set to music.  She also enjoys listening to music, skiing, going to movies at the cinema, and playing games with her family.  She aspires to a career as an engineer like her mother.  For more information, contact David Beck, 785-817-0144 or at
