People, food, and the buildings; really pretty much everything, which is actually quite nice.

I love all subjects in school, but my all time favorites have to be: music, clothing, and graphic design classes.
What do you like best about your school?
My teachers and club activities like: handball, chorus, drama, and bambies united.

I love my host family. Spending time with them at dinners and hanging with them after school are some of the most enjoyable things I do. I really feel at home with my host family; that’s such a wonderful feeling.

My most favorite activity outside of school is spending time with my host family.
