About this Student

Hello! My name is Hugo, and I am writing with great excitement about the possibility of becoming a part of your family and experiencing life in the United States.

Firstly, I am honored that you are considering me as a potential member of your household. It would be a great privilege to share your culture, traditions, and daily life with me. I hope we can create lasting memories and foster a meaningful connection.


Let me give you some insight into who I am, my interests, and what I hope to gain from my exchange year. I am a curious and adventurous individual, always eager to explore new places, meet new people, and immerse myself in different cultures. I am from the Netherlands, a land known for its excellent education, flat and open landscapes, warm hospitality, and iconic windmills.


I am also passionate about cultural exchange. I believe that by embracing our differences and celebrating our similarities, we can build friendships and cooperation that span continents. As such, I am committed to sharing my own culture with you and your family in a meaningful manner.


One of my greatest passions in life is cuisine. I am fascinated by the way food reflects the cultural norms and traditions of a society. I would be delighted to prepare some traditional dishes from my homeland for you to enjoy, and I am equally eager to learn about your favorite recipes and culinary traditions. I also love going out for dinner and look forward to sharing many meals with you.


Furthermore, I am very interested in music. While I don’t play any instruments, I enjoy listening to and exploring different musical genres, from 80’ to 00’, and sometimes even rock. I would be thrilled to share some of my favorite songs with you, and I am excited to learn about the music that you love.


As I embark on this journey, I have certain expectations and hopes for my stay abroad. Foremost among these is the opportunity to form meaningful connections with each member of your family. I hope to learn from you, laugh with you, and create everlasting memories. I am excited to participate in your family activities and traditions, and I am committed to contributing positively to the household in any way that I can.


Additionally, I am excited to explore the natural beauty and cultural landmarks of your country. Whether it’s hiking, visiting historical sites, or attending local festivals and events, I am eager to experience the cultural richness that America has to offer.


I would like to thank you for considering me as a guest in your home. I am filled with excitement to walk this journey together, and I am committed to making the most out of every moment. I look forward to the opportunity to learn, grow, and create lasting memories with your family.

I eagerly await the possibility of meeting you and beginning this incredible adventure together.
