Hello, my name is Daeyoung. First, I thank you for volunteering host.
My English name is Daniel and my age is 17. I am active and humorous but at first I maybe not speak well. My hobby is riding bicycle and I like most of exercise. My dream is not exact but I think working big company like Google would be cool.
I applied for this exchange program because I want to expand my knowledge. For example, I want to learn small things like what the norm of the handsome is in America and how to get good job. This program allows me to connect to a host family and gives me opportunity to solve my curiosity. Korean students are busy because of education and I feel exhausted. If I go to U.S., I can change my bad habits, shy personality, and study hard but learn to stop obsessing over studying. Lastly, I want to go to a U.S. college so I thought it would be better to adapt to American culture faster. I am listening to U.S. TV shows and songs to enhance my listening. I am taking effort to talk in English with my friends, to enhance my speaking. I am planning to go swimming and exercise every day during vacation with my sister. My speaking and writing is not good so I worried if there would be problem with communicating. Second, I am not good at making eye contact, so that is my last worry.
I had traveled to Taiwan, Japan, U.S. I am now high school student. I am in a science club and science meetings. I don’t have disliking subject, my favorite subjects are math, science. I had played Ping-Pong after school and soccer goalie. I want to go to scary amusement park rides, see places with nice outlook, go to Google and NASA. Nice scenery makes me comfortable and makes me happy so I want to go there. Visiting Google and NASA make me motivated and I can buy souvenirs. I think a lot how to teach Korean culture. I will buy souvenir representing Korea, make ramen and Korean traditional pizza, and buy hanbok.
Our family members are father, mother, younger sister. Our family goes to travel every holiday. I had volunteer work with my friend in care center and teach children who want to study. At first it was hard because of their behavior. I work hard to help elderly, and it was hard to teach children. When they solve question by themselves I feel comfort. There are lots of people who need help and I don’t know about them. I think this experience made me kinder.
Thank you for reading my words. Thank you for volunteering. I will be a good student and family member and work hard.
