About this Student

Hey there, I’m Lucas! I’m super excited to share my journey with you. It all began in 2021 when I stumbled upon a bunch of fascinating exchange student videos on TikTok. After an amazing short exchange to Berlin, something clicked – I knew I wanted to experience life in the USA. Staying with host families during my travels was mind-blowing and made me realize how cool it is to dive into different cultures.


Now, I’m in the process of applying to spend a whole year in the USA. My goal? Make new friends, learn tons of stuff, like new traditions and experiences. Even though my English is already good, I want to speak it like a pro with zero accent. And what better way to level up my language game than through a year-long immersion in American vibes?


Let me give you a little background about myself. I’m from a small town in the Netherlands and live with my parents, brother, and our dog. In my free time, you’ll usually find me gaming, watching movies, or listening to music. I’m a regular at the gym, hitting it three times a week to get stronger.


At school, I’m super motivated and driven, always striving to get those good grades. Cooking is also a passion of mine – I can whip up a variety of dishes. Sometimes, when my parents are busy, I step in to help in the kitchen and relieve some stress for them. One of my favorite dishes to make is chicken with rice and curry.


When it comes to vacation, I love trying new things. Whether it’s improving my skiing skills or just enjoying the rush of going fast down the slopes, I’m all for it. Now, the prospect of living and attending high school in the USA is something I’m eagerly looking forward to. I’m genuinely curious about your culture, how you live, and what high school is really like over there.


I want to debunk the stereotypes we might have about each other’s countries and see the real deal. Meeting new people, being a part of an American family, making new friendships all of these experiences will give me a firsthand look at what life is truly like in America. I’m ready for the adventure and can’t wait to see what this exchange year has in store for me!
