My favorite sports are soccer and tennis, but, apart from those, I would like to try new ones once I'm in the US, like golf, football or basketball. At the same time, I'm also a very creative person. I've been playing the piano since I was 6, and I still enjoy it; and I also love drawing. On the other hand, during the weekends, I love hiking, hanging out with my friends and family and playing videogames.

Self-Description:

I am a person who always tries to be happy and doing many things. I love being with friends making lots of plans and having fun I am very sporty and I especially like soccer. I'm going to train Monday, Wednesday and Friday and on Saturdays we play a league game. I have been playing soccer since I was 4 years old. I also play tennis, go to class on Fridays and play tournaments to improve my ranking. I like play video games too. Since I was 6 years old I go to the Official Music School of Alcobendas and I play the piano. At school, I went to a Painting Academy, because I also like to draw. I draw when I am inspired and my parents call me “little Leonardo Da Vinci”. I like to learn things, I always ask why. My favorite subject is mathematics and in general I like all subjects, especially those that have numbers. Ah, and I would also like to say that I have been studying Chinese since I was 6 years old and I like to learn its writing. I am very sensitive and I like to meet people and places in my country and abroad. That's why, for me, going to the US for a course is an extraordinary experience and I'm really looking forward to it.

I like all kinds of sports: it doesn't matter if I've played them before or not, I'm for sure gonna be interested in them. If I had to chose a favorite one, that would be basketball without a doubt. I also play waterpolo and like surfing in Summer, although I think the rarest sport that I practise is Calisthenics. It's a kind of workout in which you excercise your muscles and increase your strength. I train one or twice a week and I do it just for fun and to stay fit, very it's very rewarding.

For now my goals in life are: to study high school in science and once I finish going to university where I would like to become a scientist.

Self-Description:

My name is Theodor and I am 16 years old. I would describe myself as a quiet, attentive person. School is very important to me, so I spend some time every day doing my schoolwork. Since I was five years old, I have been swimming at the Ottobrunn swimming club in the popular sports group. A few years ago I took the lifeguard exam. Unfortunately, I could not continue because of the Covid 19. Since I was little I am interested in trains (not model trains). I like to ride trains, look at tracks and trains, and read books and magazines about railroads. Maybe it runs in the family, because my grandfather was a railroad man and loves trains as much as I do. I even did an internship at Deutsche Bahn AG twice. At school, we had the opportunity to train as DB student guides. DB student guides are young people who help other young people on the S-Bahn when there are problems. I really enjoy my work as a student guide. I'm also a school paramedic and work regularly. Sometimes I go to the city with my friends. To eat burgers and go to the movies. Sometimes we also play video games together. I'm looking forward to the year abroad and wish for a nice host family who will be happy to take me in and show me their life and the country. I am curious about the foreign culture and especially want to improve my English. I hope to make many new friends and to settle in well at school. I am convinced that the year abroad will enrich my life very much.
