Self-Description:

My name is Alma and I am 16 years old. What comes first to mind when describing myself is that I am a friendly and helpful person. I am rather calm and sometimes shy at first. After getting to know people better, I feel more confident and open up to them. I am interested in a lot of different things: current affairs, politics and geography but also, very differently, hair and beauty. Apart from that I play the cello and live out my creativity in arts and crafts. I really love to cook and bake. I am curious what this year will have in store for me.

Self-Description:

My name is Carlos Berenguer. I am 14 years old, and I have two sisters, Ana and Maria, and a brother called Pedro. I am the oldest of the four, so it means that I must be even more responsible and take care of them very often. I like playing with them, helping them when needed, and having fun together. I consider myself a smart teenager, happy, empathic, funny, a nice guy I guess... I have many friends and I think it is easy for me to find new friends when I move a new place. In my free time I like playing sports, such as athletics, but when I'm with my friends I like playing soccer, handball and volleyball. I am not the best in these sports… but I like playing with friends. During the winter I like skiing, we have a ski center near my city (just 2 hours driving). I usually go for skiing 5 or 6 days during the winter. In the summer I like doing canoeing, swimming and fishing with my father and siblings. I also love going to the beach. Additionally, I really enjoy the summer camps and to go out walking in the country with my family and friends. At home we really like playing table games like Parcheesi, Catan, Carcassone and Playing Cards. I like watching series and movies on TV with my family, such as Friends and The Big Bang Theory, Cobra Kai, Money Heist... And I also like watching my preferred youtubers playing videogames and speaking about them. I want to go to the United States because it will be a very good experience to know other cultures, meet new friends, enjoy the American lifestyle and also to improve my English level.

Self-Description:

I would describe myself as an ambitious person because I always want to give 100% and do my best. So, I’m putting myself under a lot of pressure which isn’t necessarily good. I can be very calm but also energetic depending on the people I’m with. However, my best character trait is that I’m really emphatic, so to speak I can put myself in other people's shoes (but sometimes even that can be annoying because when someone cries I start crying too) In my free time I looove to read but sadly I don’t have much time for that since I have many other hobbies. For example, I play table tennis three times a week, I take piano lessons and I attend dancing classes (ballet, American tap dance, Irish dance, modern dance and hip-hop) Additionally, I like to hang out with my best friend Isabel but she has lots of hobbies too so we see each other not really often (although we are neighbors!) What I’m looking forward to the most about going on exchange is meeting new people, making a lot of new friends and creating unforgettable memories.

Self-Description:

My name is Gabriela and I am 14 years old. My mother always says that it is a name with a lot of personality and that it reflects my way of being very well. I live with my parents (Mariano and Monica) and my older brother Álvaro (18 years old) in a city that is 17 kilometers from the center of Madrid. My brother has started this year Telecommunications at the University. I like living in Sanse and being close to Madrid, a city that offers millions of funny plans.When I go to the city center I like to eat the famous "bocata de calamares" (squid sandwich) and see the crowded streets at all hours. As we say here de "Madrid al cielo" (from Madrid to heaven). I am studying 3rd year of ESO in a school in Madrid that is a few kilometers from my home. My favorite subjects are English and German and I'm trying to become a math expert. It is a subject that involves a lot of effort, but for me it is a challenge. My father is a mathematician and helps me understand them and, even better, to like them. I believe that effort and perseverance are two of my qualities. I am also generous and I like to help people who are important in my life. I am very dynamic and outgoing and I like to make many plans. With my friends I usually go out for a snack, a walk or go shopping. I love amusement parks and music concerts. This summer I have made the most of it and I have been to Warner, Amusement Park and Acuópolis. I was also at a music festival where several musicians performed that I like a lot and I went to several concerts at the parties in my city. I listen to music every day and my favorite artists are Bad Buny and Anuel AA and when I go to the United States I will show you my favorite songs, and you can show me yours. My favorite shows are Stranger Things and Riverdale. When I'm at home, I cook, watch series and do beauty sessions with my mother: I put masks on her, I make her up. She is not smug and complains a little, but in the end we had fun! I also make my own perfumes and creams and look for recipes on the internet to make them at home. My specialty is biscuits and cookies. This year I tried a great cookie in Amsterdam and when I got home I looked for the specific ingredients and made it. Everyone says it was very good and looked a lot like the original. I also really like children and animals. I would love to have a dog and when I grow up I will adopt one that is homeless. In my urbanization the young children love me very much because I play with them and I am very affectionate. One of my favorite sports is swimming and I also really like dancing and skating. When I am in the United States I would like to continue doing one of these sports or practice a new one. My favorite hobby is traveling. On holidays, my family and I visit different places in Spain, and if possible we go to other countries. My mother is a journalist and is very fond of history. When we travel we always make tours of the city to know its history and curious things. This summer we have been in Portugal (Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais) and in Amsterdam. I chose this city because I wanted to visit Anne Frank's house. His story impacted me greatly. I've been dreaming of going to the United States for years. My parents preferred that I stay a little closer (Ireland or United Kingdom) but I was clear: United States or nothing. I think it will be the best experience of my life and I am very excited to be able to study at an Institute there and make many friends. Being able to live this experience in a family is very important to me because I like to feel protected and loved. If it were possible, I would love to visit some cities in the United States. I have always wanted to know New York and Los Angeles and I am looking forward to enjoying parties that we do not have in Spain like Thanksgiving or that we have imported from you (Halloween) because in Spain they did not exist. In this way I will be able to learn about your traditions, and I will tell you things about Spain, just as I will be happy to cook typical dishes from here.

This started with a musical club I was in for about 8 years now. In general, music is important to me. I used to play the piano and I even still play it in a band. I am looking forward to the people I will be meeting and their mindsets.

Self-Description:

I think I am a very uncomplicated friendly person who adapts easy. I am good to take things as they come. At the beginning I am a llittle shy but that will be over after a short time. Sometimes I am a little bit insecure. I like being with my family and friends to talk, play or do nice things with them, but sometimes I need a little bit time for my own, too. I am not a loud person, more a calm person. And I am very fond of animals, especially I love dogs and cats. I am very athletic and especially love playing tennis, but table tennis, soccer and basketball too. I am very interested in new things, open-minded and curious. Thats the reason I want going on exchange. I am looking forward to learn about new cultures and to learn about how is living in the USA. And it would be great to find new friends.

Self-Description:

My name is Noah. I am a sixteen years old young man. I have always liked doing sports. My first sport activity was playing handball when I was 4 years old. I did it for around 10 years. I also played tennis for 3 years and soccer for 1 year. Ten months ago I have started working out in the gym and I like it very much. I have a twinsister and she is my best friend, we can talk about everything and have a great relationship. I have a cat called Lotti and she is really cute. I like hanging out with my friends but I can also use time for myself. I want to gain new experiences, I want to see what the american lifestyle is about and I want to learn more about the american school system which is very different from ours in Germany.

Self-Description:

My name is Till. I am 15 years old and I live with my family in a small town near Hamburg. My hobbies are playing fistball which is similar to volleyball and playing soccer. I also like to play computer games or meet my friends. But most of all I like travelling. I have been to several countries in Europe already and now I want to "explore" the United States of America. How is the American Way of Life? My friends say, that it's fun hanging around with me. They like, that they can trust and rely on me, that I keep my promises and that I can keep a secret for me. Since four or five years I‘m dreaming of spending a high school year in America. I want to know what it‘s like living in the USA. How is it going to high school, learning other things than in Germany? Is it similar to all those Hollywood films? I‘m curious about your country and hope to gain a lot new impressions, to make new friends and, of course, I want to improve my English. I am sure that it will be a big challenge to get along on my own, far away from my family, but I think I will manage it.
