's Letter

Dear future hoast family, I hope you are doing great. I am a girl from Bavaria in Germany. If my family had to describe me they would probably say I am very ambitious, sporty, easy-going and loyal. I care for my friends, family and pets a lot. I have two older sisters, two cats and we have 15 hens and one rooster. Since I can imagine I dreamed of living in the USA and I have never thought that this might be come true one day. And now I´m writing on my application... it feels a bit unreal to be honest! I am fascinated by the way of living there and the culture. Hopefully, I will experience the life of a High School, even if it´s only for a couple of months. My ambition is playing basketball and I think that is also a main reason to go to the USA. Where could I improve my skillset more if not there? But I am totally into sports in general and to always be as good as possible. Before I started playing basketball, I was horseback-riding a lot. I love the idea of trying the most popular sports in the USA. They hardly exist here! Of course I would also love to spend time with you. I am very social and keen on visiting the city or other sights but I also like having a break from everything and just calm down and have a relaxing time at home. Here in Germany my family and I play cards a lot at the weekends when I am not abroad with my team. It is true that I need a scheduled plan to manage everything because basketball always comes first. But I am always able to complete my work for school because i am very responsible and know that it is imortant to have a good education. I believe that is why I am a good student: you just have to show interest, the rest will come. You just have to always try your best, then you cannot fail! Thank you for reading. If you think I match your expectations I would love to hear from you. I wish you all the best!
