About this Student

Hi I’m Sarah! I am 16 years old and in this letter I would like to tell you some things about me and why I want to do an exchange year. I live in a apartment with my parents my two brothers and my dog. I visit the 10th grade at a high school where I chose the scientific way because science is one of my favorite subjects.


Since I was 13 years old I play soccer together with my best friend. I have training twice a week and sometimes I have a game on the weekend. I love playing soccer and being part of a team and sometimes I go to the stadium to watch games from the women’s team of my local club. I would love to continue playing soccer during my year abroad.


In my free time I also like to go to the city with my friends, go on walks with my dog or play with her, watch movies, bake with my best friend or just relax at home.

I also love traveling very much and my biggest dream was always to go to Hawaii. Last summer my family and I went on a three week trip to Hawaii. We spend a lot of time at the beach or taking trips to see more of the islands. It was very beautiful and I really like to think back to it.


Some things about me are that I’m confident and a very trustworthy person I would say but I’m also a bit shy whenever I meet new people but I think that the year abroad will help me to not be so shy anymore.


I am really excited about what my year abroad will look like and I am open to experience as many American traditions as possible and to get to know the American culture better. By cooking some typical German dishes for you, I could share a bit of my culture with you. I am also curious about how the high school life is really like and if I can settle in there quickly. Over all I think that the year abroad will be so much fun because I get to experience so many new things and make new friends and memories for life.
