Dear Host Family,
Thank you so much for being willing to participate in the exchange program and accepting me to live with your family.
I am a German girl. I like trying new things, meeting new people and learning about new cultures. I like to travel and explore the world. My greatest goal in life is to say that I have traveled to all the countries this world has to offer.
I am a very honest, straightforward, fun-loving and outgoing person. I like doing sports as swimming, basketball and volleyball. I love reading romantic books while listening to music. And I enjoy helping people and making them happy.
All my life I have played some kind of sport, but I could never stay in a team - let alone find one, because I was always way too old or way too young for the other players. So I am hoping, that I could maybe join a team in America, but I understand, if I am not able to in my school, but I am very interested in trying other things and joining school clubs.
My mother is a single parent and works in an office. My older sister is 3 years older than me and is training to be a chemical laboratory assistant. We are a close family and I hope to become a part of your family as well.
I have wanted to do an exchange year in America since I was 14 Years old, because I was fascinated by your culture and your country. I taught myself a lot of English by watching movies and reading books in English. And I look forward to speaking your language fluently.
When I saw the wonderful pictures of my Ayusa sisters and brothers, it made me more determined to go to America and learn about your culture. I believe that I can also have a lot of unforgettable memories with you and my new friends in America. I am excited to become a part of your family!
