Hello! I am Jueun, from Korea. I am a high school student. First, I would like to thank you for allowing me to stay with you.
My family members are my parents and younger sister. We live in one city, but my high school is in another, so I stay there during the week. I return to spend time with my family on weekend. When I am home, I watch TV, go shopping and go hiking and on Sundays I go to church together with my family. In the church my parents do volunteer work, I and sister joined the orchestra in last year.
I go to a Christian high school. Our class has a prayer time every day and does chapel on every Wednesday, so we have a deep faith. During the prayer, I play the piano and feel happy.
I am active and have a lot of curiosities about many things. I am interested in space like moon and stars, so I joined the space science club to learn it carefully in this year. In there we took a picture like a moon. Also, I love music, I can play the piano very well and flute too. Also I want to write music later. It is one thing of my bucket list. Plus, I like watch a movie like La La Land and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Inception. I don’t know what I want to become yet.
I do volunteer by playing the piano in our class prayer and in church last year. While I played the piano, I can reduce the stress and feel happy. And I appreciate that I can serve for my piano skill.
I went to the U.S.A in this year summer vacation as a field trip with my classmates and teacher. I visited to Grand Canyon. The nature was beautiful and amazing. I also went to New York to see Statue of Liberty. It was amazing. I would like to go there once again if I have a chance.
I want to learn and experience American culture living with Americans. I also want to improve English. So I apply USA exchange student program. Also I want to make American friends. I want to be a good friend to host family and school friends. In school I want to learn America’s great education and join the various clubs. Also I want to have a good time with your family such as watching movies. I wonder what to wear, how to play and what to eat in American party. Korea’s party or festival in the school sometimes makes me feel bored. It is in part because students usually wear school uniform or gym clothes on these occasions. I heard that Korean student are not free because of their hard workloads and college preparations, but American student is free in school. So I want to enjoy my school year to have wonderful memories in American school which I would not have in Korean school.
I want to introduce K-POP, food like Ramen and Topokki, and Korea’s clothes. Also I introduce Korea history through Taxi Driver, I Can Speak and Assassination, which are all Korean movies related to Korea’s important historic events. If I find people want to know Korean language, I would want to teach them Korean. I am looking forward to going to America to find a new family and friends and would like to get along well with them.
Thank you very much for taking me as one of your family member. I hope it will be a meaningful time during one year with your family. Thank you.
