Self-Description:

I would describe myself as a helpful, friendly and open minded teenager. My family and friends are important to me, and I am convinced that school and being well educated is very important. I want to be an orthodontist after university. In my free time after school, I like to play floorball, doing sports and meet my friends. In the evenings and on the weekends I like to spend time with my family at home, playing billard, talking to each other or doing some outdoor activities together. Being on exchange next year in the US means to me lifting my English language skill to a higher level and increasing my self-confidence by managing myself in a foreign environment and being away from home. The second most important subject for me is learning the american culture and being part of it for a while and I am excited to go for one year to the High-School.

Self-Description:

I would start describing myself by saying that I am generous, kind, responsible, empathetic, loving, creative and organized. I love trying new things and experiences, that is a reason of why I would like to live this wonderful experience! I like playing sports, such as paddle-tennis, running; I like watching movies especially romantic comedies; listening to pop music; reading books; spending time with my family and friends and a lot of things more. I want to live this experience, since I would like to learn a little more about a different culture, meet new people, try new food (since I love it) and above all, learn more English, since it is a language that I love. I would love to live this great experience!

Self-Description:

I would describe myself as curious in things like sports and politics. I am quite patient and a team player. My family is very important to me. If you ask my family they would probably describe me as kind, forgetful and often silly. Unfortunately, I sometimes get easily annoyed and unfocused. I like to get to know new people and I am interested in history and sports. My favourite soccer sports team in Germany is the FC Bayern Munich and in the UK Liverpool FC. Luckily, my sister just moved to Munich so I hope to visit the stadium soon. My favourite American sports team is the Milwaukee Bucks. I always follow the daily sport news. I enjoy watching movies and tv shows with friends and family. I like horror movies and my favourite tv shows are Designated survivor, Breaking bad and Modern family. I am slightly interested in daily politics. When it comes to outdoor activities I love swimming, fishing and diving (not professional). My biggest hobbies are playing tennis and basketball. I play tennis for over 10 years by now and I still enjoy it a lot. Unfortunately basketball is not as popular as in the US so I really hope to play it over there. I also enjoy playing games on my cellphone, even though I am not allowed to play as much as I would like to. I really hope to develop myself personally and educational wise as well. I hopefully improve my english. My wish is to make lifelong friends and get to know the American culture and the habits of my future host family. My dream would be to experience the American way of life (especially Thanksgiving). I also hope to experience the typical high school life. I am really looking forward to having my own locker and having lunch breaks together.

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:

Some adjectives I would use to describe myself are open-minded, caring, loyal, silly, friendly and empathetic, but I tend to be quite shy when facing new people. But when I get confident enough, the shyness goes away and I've been told by my friends and family that I am really funny and outgoing. I consider myself to be polite and well mannered. I must admit I am not the sportiest girl, but I am always open to try new activities and I always want everyone to have fun. I like swimming, bowling (which I'm terrible at) and working out at the gym. Although I don't anymore, I played basketball and paddle for 5 years and I really liked it. I enjoy every kind of arts, like music, paintings or films and series. I’m really looking forward to meeting new people, to improving my english, to making new friends, to get to live the American life with an American family and to create a beautiful bond with them. I am really excited to go there and live all the differences between our cultures, like the holidays celebrated there and the traditions.

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.

Self-Description:

Describing myself, I would say I am a curious, funny, and empathic person. I enjoy exploring new ideas and experiences, and I am always eager to learn more about the world around me. However, I do admit that sometimes I can be a bit of a perfectionist, and occasionally I find myself being a bit bossy when I want things done a certain way. One thing I'm working on is reducing the pressure I put on myself, especially when it comes to school. In terms of hobbies and interests, I have a diverse range of activities that I enjoy. I love playing volleyball, as it's both competitive and a great way to stay active. I am also passionate about music and theater—I play the piano, enjoy singing, and have a love for performing on stage. When I have free time, I like to read mystery novels and paint. Spending time with friends is important to me, whether it's traveling together, going shopping, or simply hanging out. I have a fondness for thrilling experiences like riding tall and fast rollercoasters, but I also appreciate cozy moments watching comedy or love movies with popcorn and a warm blanket. Most of all, I cherish moments of uncontrollable laughter over silly jokes or situations. Looking ahead to my exchange year, I am excited about making new friends and immersing myself in American culture. I am particularly eager to experience traditional celebrations like Thanksgiving, Halloween, and Christmas, which I believe will be incredibly fun and memorable. Improving my English language skills and embracing new experiences like cheerleading or attending an American high school are also things I am looking forward to with great enthusiasm. Overall, I am filled with anticipation and excitement about the adventure and growth that my exchange year will bring.

In my opinion I am a very outgoing open person, because I like to meet new people and I love it to talk about different things in life. But I also like to spend time with my parents. I take them on trips to the beach, which is also not far away, play games with them, or we watch a film or do other great things together. A few times a year we also go to visit my grandparents, they live in berlin so I can’t see them that often. But when we are there or they come to visit us, I am always very happy because we do a lot of pretty things together. Furthermore I play tennis since last year. I had every Tuesday training. I love to hear music all the time. During my exchange year abroad I am most looking forward to seeing what life is like in the USA with a different family, how school is different from school in germany, getting to know a new culture, watching new sports that are not so common in germany and of course meeting new people.

Self-Description:

"I would say I am authentic and self-confident; I stand by my opinion and do what I think is right. I love talking to new people and getting to know them. I am interested in different opinions and I always try to understand everyone's point of view. I like to encourage, motivate and always see the positive in everything. I think a lot about life, myself and my fellow human beings. I'm also a perfectionist, which can be hard but also means I won’t give up until I reach my goal. But this weakness also has positive sides, because I won't give up until I reach my goal. A healthy diet is crucial for me, and I enjoy cooking nutritious meals — I'm super excited to get taught some of your favorites! I prefer a balance between sleeping in and waking up early, depending on the day. I enjoy reading, particularly in winter, and like to stay active with workouts, climbing, dancing, and jogging. Since i’m quitting gymnastics, I’d love to try more styles of dance! I would love to have host siblings my age or be in a double placement. I have a passion for Spanish, and I love listening to English and Spanish music. I think that hardly anything brings people together like music. I recently started learning piano and taking singing lessons, and I’ve always taken acting lessons. I love meeting up with friends, because basically everything is more fun together!"

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’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.

Self-Description:

I am Anna, a 15 year old girl from Germany (during my exchange year I will be 16/17). I would consider myself creative, empathetic, fun to be around and an optimistic person. Even tho I can be shy at first, I can adapt to new situations very fast. Another thing about me is that I like to try new things and always try my best to make everyone feel comfortable. My hobbies are gymnastics, which I don’t do competitive anymore, but I still enjoy doing it once a week. I also like swimming and kayaking, which me, my family and friends do every summer. Another thing I like is skiing because I think it gives the feeling of being free. In my gymnastics club I am a trainer, which means that I help the kids younger than me and I also tutor a kid in school that needs help in certain subjects. When I am not doing any of this I also like listening to music, reading and meeting up with my friends, with who I like to talk and sometimes to play board games. What I am most excited about is all the memories I will be able to make during my exchange, like going to an American Highschool for the first time and getting to know all the things that are different from Germany. I also think that this exchange year will help me become more independent and confident.

For example, during wintertime in Switzerland, I go each weekend with my family to ski in the mountain. In summer, I participate to tennis tournaments, or I go to the lake with my friends. I can also stay at home and then enjoy the pool or play tennis table. During my exchange, I really want to try and experience new things, meet new people and hopefully stay in touch with them afterwards. I also hope that I can continue to play tennis in USA and if I'm lucky, why not skiing. Regarding the host family, I hope we can talk a lot together and have fun as my main objective is to be bilingual in English at the end of my exchange. I think that speaking is the key to reach this goal.

I go to the gym everytime is possible and now, in summer I go there approximately every day. I like it because it is a place where I can clear my mind and I have fun there because there are also my friends. I love animals and I really like spending my time with them, I have one cat and she is my "baby". In my future I would like work with animals and travel allover the world. Another thing that I enjoy is walking on the beach or in the woods with my friends or family. My favorite things are the beach and the sea, I love relaxing and sunbathe but I also like the "beach's games" as beach volley, rackets or just swimming and plunging. I have other hobbies but these here are the main ones.

Self-Description:

My name is Asia, now I'm 15 but when I'll arrive there I'll be 16, almost 17. I have really long brown hair that I love, blue eyes and soft cheeks. I wear glasses and without them I can't see so well; I am medium high and thin. I define myself as a cheerful girl, who likes laugh and staying with a lot of people both my friends and my family. I'm also determinate and if I want to reach something I do the possible to achieve it. I am polite but also I get annoyed easily because I'm really touchy. I am mature and I have no problems relating to adults and I'm always glad to try new things and make new experiences. I love swimming and in winter going snowboard, I can also ski but I prefer snowboard. I like cooking, both sweet and savory dishes, going out with my friends and family especially in restaurants; I love doing physical activities like walking or lift weights, playing volleyball and dancing. I like table games and games with cards, I also like watching series and movies, drawing and taking care of myself doing skincare, facial masks or scrubs. I really love pets and staying in contact with nature, especially I love seascapes. I also like sleeping but I am a early riser person most of the time. I think this experience will be formative and useful to understand what are my passions and my vocation, I like to try a new lifestyle with different habits because I adapt easily. I can't wait to pass one year in a different country, meeting new people and have fun with my host family and new friends. I love the idea of knowing perfectly a new language because it can help me in my future and trips. I hope to pass a lot of time with my family and create memories together.

Sometimes I also go fishing, it is really fun and relaxing, standing at a lake and trying to get a fish to bite your bait.

"I found peace in you, the one I was looking for inside me". A friend I met last year during my study trip said that before leaving me. That really impressed me and I have thought about it for a long time. Many people everyday express their feelings to me as I am empathetic and I always listen to everyone. I am not really extroverted, I prefer observing the world around me quietly: I learn a lot of things this way! So, meeting as many people as possible is one of my goals for this experience in order to learn new things. I worked hard to have that personality. Although I love it, I expect the year abroad to change my points of view and my lifestyle. I am conscious my approach to life will be completely different in two years time and I am really looking forward to see what it is going to be like!

I would describe myself as a very funny, outgoing guy who likes to make people laugh and is very open and approachable. I also have the ability to quickly become interested and enthusiastic about almost any topic, currently history and geography for example, so I am very inquisitive. I also enjoy reading fantasy books and listening to music with a very diverse taste in music. During the exchange, in addition to life in the family, I would especially like to get to know the high school. Does it really differentiate from German schools or is it the way you see it in the films? I want to be able to answer these questions myself.

My birthday is on the 29th February, which is also just every four years, when I was little it was kinda annoying for me but today I think it’s kinda special. I live in house with my parents, my brother and my dog. I would describe myself as a really polite and responsible person, I like to help other people or be there for them. I am open when it comes to getting to know new people even when I am sometimes a little bit shy at the beginning, but when I get to know them a little bit more I am completely myself. But I think my weakness is that I am sometimes a little bit to competitive because I am scared to disappoint people who are important to me but I try to keep this in check and work on it. I like to go horse riding and doing boxing, I do my hobbies with my friends because I think then it is just funnier and it makes me happier. I enjoy to spend time with my friends and family but sometimes I also want to be alone, when I want to calm down from school or anything. Another thing I really enjoy is going on vacations with my family or my friends. The most I am looking forward about going on exchange is learning ne things, living the high school life and also maybe getting a second family and home.

In winter I am often up in the mountains skiing or cross country skiing with my family. In summer I enjoy going to the lake after school with my friends or spending time with my family. The most important things in life for me are my family, my friends and sports. I like to spend time with my parents and my older brother this often includes outdoor activities like hiking, skiing or taking our beagle dog Wally for a walk. On the weekends I often meet my friends and we go to the city together because we all like shopping. I’m a really active person, I like to run, do workouts and many other activities. I’m going to a public High school near my hometwon. I would say the best part about school is meeting my friends and eating lunch with them. My favorite subjects are PE, Biology and Spanish. I’m really interested in learning new languages and currently I’am learning English, French and Spanish in school and a little bit Swedish at home. I also had Latin lessons for two years. I would describe my character as hard working, active, friendly, talkative and most importantly open for new experiences. Moments I am really looking forward to are meeting my new host family, learning new sports after school, meeting many new people and making friendships that will last forever. I hope that I will have the chance to live in a completely different place and climate zone (maybe near the sea), different to what I am used to here in Switzerland. I hope that I will learn much about myself and will make the best out of the good and bad days.

In my free time I play volleyball, do horseback riding, play the cello or do sport in general. Sometimes it is a little hard to study and do my hobbies at the same time, but I am always able to manage it. There are two things that I am looking forward to the most about going on the change. First thing is to meet my host family, getting to know them and being able to live another lifestyle. The second thing is the new school.

I like geography, contemporary history, mathematics, physics and, of course, sports education. Last summer I was studying in Ireland and lived with a family. It was a great experience that made me consider living in the United States for a year.

Apart from this type of plans I also go with my family to mass on Sundays and with my cousins and my grandmother when there are family meals or dinners. I think it is because of all this that I have a good relationship with my parents, my three sibilings and of course with Raxo,my dog. I consider myself a shy person, but as soon as I gain confidence with people I become much more open, and this is where sports come in, hobbies like soccer, tennis, running or cycling , help me to meet new people and that's why I consider myself a very active person, sporty speaking. Not to brag but just as I have mentioned before an aspect in which I should improve such as my shyness I think it is relevant to highlight good things about my personality such as the fact that I consider myself a very responsible and mature person. Earlier I mentioned many activities and hobbies that I do here in Spain, but there is one that stands out, and that is that I have been playing soccer all my life and it is one of the most important things for me, apart from playing I love to watch the team I support (Real Madrid) in short it is an activity that I love and I enjoy it with my father thanks to the passion he transmitted me for this sport.

When I am not studying my first thoughts are going to the gym. It helps me vent and stay fit. I go there every other day with my classmate Chiara. I also love going for long walks with my dad. In the summer we usually wake up early, go to the sea and run, watching the wonderful landscape. In the winter, we stroll under the longest arcade in the world in order to arrive at the top of a hill where a church is located (Church of San Luca in Bologna). I enjoy listening to different types of music in different languages, especially French, Spanish and Arabic. I like animals, I love horses, I even did horse riding for a short period. In the family we also have a dog, a poodle, Gilda, she belongs to my aunt, but I see her every day at my grandparents' house. I am passionate about performing arts. I adore travelling.

Self-Description:

I am reflected in the characteristics of my star sign, the libra, because I am friendly and sensitive. Honestly, at the beginning I can seem shy but after a while I open up. Usually, I describe my personality by saying that I have a good heart and at the same time a really strong personality. I know how to assert my opinion while always staying polite and without being influenced by others. I accept and appreciate constructive criticism and I am the first to tell others if something goes wrong. My hobby is going to the gym with one of my friends three times a week and I am interested in fashion, performing arts and jewelry. My dad works in an architectural design company, and he collaborates with a fashion stylist. My mum, as a hobby, acts. My paternal grandad is a painter and maternal one is a jeweler. I have these passions thanks to them. About going on exchange, I’m looking forward to completely changing my life. I will adapt myself in order to become a real American student. I hope I’ll have a great relationship with my future host family and with the other exchange student I would like to have in my same home. I think it will be a difficult but at the same time a wonderful and unforgettable experience, and I would like to enjoy it to the fullest.

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.

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.

As part of my personality I love helping people, is a thing that my parents have tought me. For giving an example, in my school there is a kid per class who is named the healping kid so when any of the class is sad or have any kind of problem, that kid is there for healping him/her. I have been known this kid two times now and I'm really proud of myself because I'm able to help all my classmates. On the other hand, I wanted to mention that I love animals, and that is one of the reasons why I want to become a veterinarian in the future. When I was younger, I had a pet rabbit named Lindo, and we also had gerbils. Since last Christmas, we have had a puppy that we adopted because she was abandoned, and her name is Wifi. I have a lot of hobbies and I love to try new things. Nevertheless, I really love to play volleyball, I do it since I'm three and I cannot live without playing. Other hobbies are painting, reading and playing with toys. Also, as all kids I love to hang ot with my friends. Besides, I love travelling, I want to go to a lot of places around the world because I think is so interesting to see how the cultures are completely different in all countrys and I love to see the different monuments and environments we can find all around the world as well.

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.
