Dear Host Family,
My name is Apisara but in English I go by Earn. I am studying in grade 9. I think my life is just like normal Thai kid except during the first years of my life. When I was 2 years old, I had been in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with parents and studied there for 3 years. Since I was in grade 6, my passion was to study in a good school, so I studied hard in order to complete my dream. After I succeeded in the entrance exam of junior high school, I felt more relief. Normally, I spend most of my time singing, playing, studying, listening to music and enjoying online chit-chat with my friends. My parents knew I loved singing so they took me to singing lessons since I was 7 years old. Every semester break, the singing school has an internal concert where everyone can perform a singing show. My hardest song at the time was “Think of me” because it required a head tone. But I got through it.
Now I’m growing up, I have to start planning my future. I know a senior student at my school who was an exchange student in the United States, then I got an idea of becoming an exchange student in the US. Because of the pictures she posted on her IG stories made me want to go to America. School activities, how it looks like in the classroom, the people and the food, everything made me feel like America was a great country to go to. I started to work hard and focus more on my future. I hope that if I have a chance to go to America, I will make a lot of friends, gain wonderful experience and learn about international culture there. Also, having chances to see big festivals that Thailand doesn’t have, see snow, and practice English.
Let’s get to know my family, I live with 6 people including mom, dad, grandpa, grandma, my younger brother and me. My dad is a government officer. My mom is housewife. She is taking care of everyone. Dad likes to play games, sports and fix broken things in my house. Mom likes to plant cactus, do the gardening and baking. We also like to travel to the beach on holiday. Our village is in Bangkok suburb. We make merit on Sunday in our village. My mom drives me to school every day.
Both my parents encouraged me to go to America. They like to tell me the stories when they went to school in America (Both graduated from US university). Grandpa likes to plant trees, but grandma is bedridden. My brother and I like to play game, watching TV, YouTube and talk together, we are very close.
I wouldn’t have any problem to stay in a host family with kids and pets such as cat or dog. I like English, PE and Music. Especially in music class, I enjoy it every time I study. When I have leisure time, I like listening to music, singing and dancing TikTok. I like listening to all kinds of music but my favorite singers are Keshi, Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber. I’m also a fan of BTS which is a very popular Korean boy group. I like them because they started everything from 0. They used to be a no-nonsense band. They are role models and examples in my life. My favorite color is white because it looks clean and pure. I like candy, gummies, and sweets also chocolate. Sometimes I tried to bake bakery but most of them failed. But with a successful one, I’m very proud of it. I like cold weather. The season I like is spring, imagine if I could see different colored leaves falling along the path, it would be beautiful to look at.
My educational goal is becoming an exchange student and further study abroad. I will try my best to make my parents proud of me.
Thank you very much for choosing me. I will be a good kid for you.
