Hello, my name is Paula.
First I would like to thank my host family the possibility they give me to study next year in the USA, I know that without your help this it would be impossible.
I’m 16 years old. I consider myself a sensitive, sweetie, sociable, humble and empathic person.
I like to go out with my friends, I like to dance, I like to go to the beach in the summer. I use to play Paddle tennis, listen to music and read good books, in fact, each day, when I go to bed, I need to read something to relax and sleep better.
I live on a country where there is a lot of culture and different types of landscapes.
My parents have a little service company and have different functions. My mom is a commercial and my dad an administrative. I have a good relationship with my parents. Sometimes, especially rainy days, when we don’t have nothing to do, we play board games and we spend a nice family time. I have two step brothers. They don’t live with me, because they already have couples and sons. My relationship with them is like a normal relationship between brothers, though we don’t see each other very often. In my house I usually take care of my room, to clean and make the bed. My mother always cooks, except on the weekends that cooks my father. I know how to cook simple recipes.
I go to a school that is not very close to home, it’s a private school and it’s very big, it has many buildings and is very modern.IMy favorite subjects are emotional education and gymnastics.
I have 2 groups of friends, one group is from people who go to my school, and the other group is from people outside my school. With my group of friends from school, we spent all the playgrounds together having a great time, we also meet some weekends. And with my group of friends outside the school we meet every Saturday afternoon, we do activities and buy sweets, we have a great time.
I want to go to the United States because I think it is a unique opportunity, I will learn a lot, not only English but also that I will know another culture, manners, people, etc … this will be my first time that I leave so much time alone in a foreign country. I have a little fear of going in case I don’t make friends, and I feel lonely, but I have friends who have already had this experience and say they have had such a good time that they want to repeat, and that gives me more illusions to go.
Before saying goodbye, I would like to express my gratitude again for give me this opportunity living this amazing experience.
