About this Student

HI! I’m Catharina and I look forward to sharing my exchange with you!


I am very exited to learn about American things like football, the American holidays and be a part of your daily activities. I look forward to be going to baseball games and football games at school, I also may want to try out to be a cheerleader! I’m usually not really into sports but cheerleading has always been a dream of mine. I really like horse riding, I’ve never done western riding, always just dressage and jumping. I’ve mentioned it before, but im a girlie girl! I love to do my make-up, my hair and to dress nice. I also really like traveling, I’ve been to: Italy, Spain, Greece, France, The UK, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland and before I leave for my exchange im going to Turkey for a week. I have also been to the USA once for my fathers work. We went to Florida during summer break, I don’t remember much because I was 6 but we went to Disneyland and we went to see the space shuttle, that was kind of where my dream of living in America started.


I also really like to bake with my friends or for my friends. When I had my first sleepover with my best friend we baked cupcakes and gave one to our favorite teacher. Im a really big fan of Ariana grande! I have been since 2013 I have all her records and I listen to her music all the time. Once my father offered me to go to a concert and for some reason I said no, because I was getting teased for being such a fan. It’s one of the biggest mistakes of my life and I regret it to this day, because after that she stopped making music for a while, but I’m exited she’s coming back! I took singing lessons myself for allround 2 years I would love to resume that someday. I’m really looking forward to Prom as well. I had a prom last year and I loved my prom dress and I really want to wear it again. It was also not that big of a deal to my school and I’ve always wanted to experience a fancy American prom.


I care a great deal about my family, but I also want to get the most out of my experience. I am very exited to bond with you as well, because I heard that your host family can become to feel like your own. Overall im just really exited to go on this adventure with you, and I can’t wait to see who im going to be staying with.
