I feel really interested in fashion and I enjoy a lot choosing my outfits or helping my friends with them. I listen to a lot of different types of music but the one that I listen the most is pop. THe movies and series I enjoy the most watching are mistery or romance but I also love disney movies. I am really excited to go one year to the USA.

Self-Description:

I would describe myself as a friendly, caring, open-minded, polite and empathetic girl. I’m usually a bit shy when I meet new people, but soon enough the shyness goes away and I have been told by my friends and family that I'm really funny and outgoing. I must admit I'm not the sportiest girl, but I'm always open to try new activities and I always want everyone to have fun. I like swimming, bowling and working out at the gym. Although I don't anymore, I played basketball and paddle for 5 years and I really liked it, so I wouldn't mind playing either of them again. I enjoy music and I listen to it whenever I can. In my free time, I usually hang out with my family or with my friends, read, draw or discover new things to do. I’m looking forward to meet new people, discover new places, improve my english, make new friends, get to live the American life with an American family and create a beautiful bond with them. I am very excited to start this journey!

What I like most, is to spend time with my friends, and live new experiences. That is why, over the summer I travelled to Ireland and stayed with a lovely family, and I really enjoyed the experience. In my free time I play soccer, it’s the sport I practice the most, I play in a team. I also like to play paddle tennis, mostly with my father. I have been swimming since I was born, because for my father´s work, I was born in Rio de Janeiro, and I learned to swim before I could walk. I am lucky that at school in Madrid, one of the subjects is swimming, and I would love to continue practicing during my time in USA. In summer I practice all aquatic sports that I can, like Surf and Paddle Surf in our Mediterranean Spain coast beach house. As you can imagine, I am happy playing sports, but I also enjoy going restaurants with my friend and my family. I am thinking about this experience all the time, I would love to be able to join the soccer team at school and living experiences such as prom.

I used to skate but I don’t skate since last year. I’m not too traveller but I'm always looking fordward to visit new places and having more knowledge of their culture and traditions. I am looking forward during the exchange to improve my English level, as it is the most important language to know in foreign countries, and for the experience of being a huge amount of time in a foreign country. Also, I am looking foward to meeting new people and doing a cultural exchange.

I really like photography, I'm quite sporty and I'm currently taking a parkour course. I love reading and listening to music and I can play the piano. In summer I often ride to my friends' house by bike and hang out. I also enjoy trekking with my dog in the mountains.


Allergies:

hazelnuts, nuts, dust, grasses


Special Diet:

No special diet


Self-Description:

I would describe myself as a curious person, one that is not afraid to try out new things. I embrace change and can adapt quickly to new circumstances. I’m quite confident and driven and I tend to not quit things easily, instead I prefer to understand my mistakes and learn from them. I’m an introvert, but I open up as soon as I get comfortable with someone. I’m a peaceful and hyperactive person at the same time, that is also the reason for which I do parkour: I think it’s calm and energetic just like me, because it’s not meant for a competition and it’s about working on yourself, pushing your limits, but at your own pace, all of that while doing something potentially dangerous, that gives incredible adrenaline rushes and relieves in the air all the stress you’ve accumulated, unlike many other sports that relieve it instead on punching balls or on other people. I also really like riding my bike along the lake, where I also love hanging out with my friends, swimming and going canoeing. I’d say that my motto is “Do it for the plot”, and I apply it especially when I’m hesitant on whether to do something or not: I tell myself: “What will you remember? What do you want to be remembered for?”. While I’ll be in the US I hope to create memories, about new people, new traditions, new everyday moments. I hope to build relationships and grow personally in an immersive environment, completely different from mine.

When I'm not indulging in my creative side, I like to take peaceful walks and admire the beauty of the natural world, especially during breathtaking sunsets. what excites me most about this exchange is the opportunity to connect with new people and build meaningful relationships. Although I can be a bit reserved at first, I am always eager to learn about others and their experiences. I'm also looking forward to experiencing life in an American high school, attending football games, and engaging in classes that challenge me and expand my horizons.

On my exchange I would like to get to know the culture, improve my English and meet a bunch of valuable people.

I am a rather calm person when I don't feel comfortable in a new situation. But as soon as I know the people around me a little bit, I will be funny and happy too. I think it is important to have humor and not to take everything too serious. Especially, being able not to take jokes about oneself too serious is important. I love to try out new things and learn new things and understand them. So for example I learned windsurfing during these summer holidays and tried kayaking two years ago. My hobbys are climbing, playing the guitar and I started golfing this year. For me it is important to understand what I'm doing before I do it and not just try something without any knowledge how it works. In my freetime I also like playing basketball with friends. I'm planning on trying out something new this year. However, I am also open to do something entirely different in my exchange year.

My hobbies are weightlifting, cross-fit-sports and as mentioned computer science - not only playing but developing and working with these fascinating machines. To go on an exchange has different aspects for me: to perfect my english skills is the most obvious reason, but furthermore I like to take the opportunity to dive in into the american way of life and see how I can handle it to be away from my family, friends and normal german life.

At home, I help daily with my parents at the household needs. The thing in which I help more is putting the table or picking up the dishes from the dishwasher. My parents say I am very independent and that helps me know myself because when I go walking alone I know that I can do whatever I want. I am also very athletic: I played rugby for three years. I have done gymnastics since I was six years old, I have practised judo, karate, soccer, snowboarding and surfing. Also in my school, we have one hour of Physical Education daily, but until this year we had two hours daily. With my parents we love to ride our bikes, this summer we went on a trip from Madrid to Valencia by bike, and three years ago we went from Madrid to Antequera also by bike, and the same in France. I love music and sometimes I try making it but it's hard to, do so I just listen to it. Anyway, I won't give up until I make something that sounds good. A good thing about me is that I adapt easily to others' customs, and I am very friendly so for me it's easy to make friends. I am also a curious guy so I am always open to new experiences. And those are the reasons I would like to participate in this interchange.

Self-Description:

Hi my name is Zofia and I am a sixteen year old girl from Poland. My greatest strength is that I can adapt to new situations and people quickly, I am quite a talker when taken with a subject of discussion or with a person, but I don’ t mind silence either, I am also open minded and hardworking (or at list when it comes to that last thing I really try to be ). My biggest passion is drawing, I do it every day and I hope to make it my future career and use this skill to tell stories through animation. when I was younger I couldn’t put down a book, now I don’t have as much time as I would like for reading but I still love to interpret stories, music and texts and I am still held hostage by audiobooks, fictional podcasts, musicals and when I have time classic literature and mythology . I love sports but my condition is not as great as it used to be (I play tennis 2 times a week). I am really enthusiastic about the exchange, meeting new people, making connections and going to school that is from what I herd completely difrent from mine current high school.
