It’s life-changing to have a second family in another part of the world!
Being an exchange student is a unique opportunity to not only learn about the world and a new culture, but about yourself and what you can do for yourself. It allows for a new start which can be both scary and exciting.
I learned that I am capable of so much more than I ever knew. My sense of self and confidence have really grown.
Being a part of the school musical and going to prom with my friends were some of the absolute best parts of the year.
This experience will be a part of my life forever, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
