Odette off to Denmark
FOR as long as she can remember Odette Swaine, 15, has been coping with Army deployments.
If mum, Michelle Miller, or dad, Gary Swaine weren’t deployed, they were probably getting ready to deploy, or just back from deployment.
Next year, it’s her turn and she will be the one deploying.
In February, Odette will leave behind Mum, Dad, and her sisters Scarlett, 11, and Katerina, 8 when she goes to Denmark to live with a host family for 11 months.
Odette won an international scholarship through the AFS Scholarship Fund.
