The sunny coast of Varna, Bulgaria is definitely a stark contrast to the snow laden Fox Valley.

Rada Lazarova, 17, is a junior this year at NHS, and she is hosted by the Zwaska family and its talented Boston Terrier.

Lazarova volunteers at the Appleton Alliance Church and Neenah Public Library, where she puts returned books and media back on the shelves. She says enjoys the volunteer work, even if it might be a bit of a drag at times.

Easy to spot with her penguin-face lunchbox, Lazarova shows her hospitality and openness by fearlessly approaching new faces and presenting herself with pride. She is currently a member of several extracurriculars, such as Key Club and the girls’ tennis team. Her hobbies include but are not limited to geo-caching and movie watching.

Lately she has been campaigning for an original video she has entered in PAX’s student contest. Obtaining the highest amount of likes has the potential to earn a multitude of prizes, like a $50 Amazon gift card or an Android tablet. The video features a brief overview of Lazarova’s experiences in America thus far, all told through the eyes of her host family’s dog, Java.

What she did not expect, Lazarova says, was the political turmoil and election drama she has heard all about since arriving. Her vote would be for Gary Johnson if she could cast one. She enjoys his various Internet memes.

Above all else, though, Lazarova claims her favorite feature of America at this point is the classic grilled cheese sandwich.

    Even a 17 year-old girl from Bulgaria understands the importance of volunteering and staying civically engaged within the community. The writers, Nick Morrissey and Casyn Bowers, used great effective language with their description of Lazarova working at the Neenah Public Library. I can just imagine her slowly dragging along, putting books and media away.
