Dear future host family,
I’m excited to meet you!!
I’ve been dreaming about being an exchange student in the USA since I was a child!!
I’m so honored to be in this program. I used to watch American movies, and hoped that one day I could go to high school in the USA!!
My name is Carlos, I was born in Barcelona (Spain). I’m 15 years old and I live in a small town next to Barcelona. I have two brothers and I’m the youngest one. I have four dogs whose names are: Yagor, Duch, Dolce, and Gabbana. My dad is a scientific researcher and my mum is a university professor. I live in a house near the mountains.
My hobbies are: being with friends because I’m a very social person, listening to music, swimming, rollerblading, collecting minerals and making jewelry. I like being with friends because I have fun with them and I learn how to be with people. I like listening to music since it helps me concentrate and learn new genres of music. I like swimming two days a week because It helps me relax from school, the same with rollerblading that I do once a week.
I love collecting minerals. I have a huge collection that I started when I was 9 years old. I love going to crystal shops and to gem exhibitions!! The bad thing Is that sometimes I spend too much money on minerals. When I was In San Diego (California), I used to cut and polish minerals at the San Diego Gem and Mineral Society, and I loved it. I hope that in the future I can return to San Diego. Making jewelry is very good for me because it helps me concentrate on small details. I started making jewelry in 2020. I have a big plastic box with supplies. I love doing wire rings. I hope that in the future I could manage to do jewelry with silver.
I’m a very social person, and open-minded as well. Sometimes I talk a lot because I’m outgoing. I’m polite and I care a lot about people’s feelings. I’m an empathic person and I always try to help others, although sometimes, I help others more than myself.
I like going to school. I’m a very curious person and I always like to learn new things. I always like to ask questions about the subjects that I’m studying. I’m very creative and I love art subjects. History Is interesting because you learn about how people lived. It’s one of my favorite subjects. Math is very cool. I love algebra and equations. At school, I always like to study for my exams ahead of time and do my work with a good presentation. I like school because I see my friends and teachers.
Thank you for reading my letter and I wish to see you soon!!
Have a wonderful day!!
