Dear Host Family,
First of all, thank you for accepting an exchange student and permitting me to live with you!
My name is Maja, I am from Germany, and I would love to spend 5 months in America. I would find it very interesting to get to know a new culture over a longer period and I would be happy to spend this time with you.
I have traveled a lot with my family, for example to Italy, Greece, France, or Spain. This summer I will also go on vacation to Italy without my parents. I don't think this will be a problem for me as I've spent several nights without my parents on several occasions and have never felt homesick.
I love listening to podcasts. Nevertheless, I'm also outside a lot, meeting up with friends or going on adventures with my family. I play the flute several times a week since I was 8, also in an orchestra, and I'm passionate about playing table tennis. At the moment I'm also doing a dance class, which I really enjoy. For some time, I have also been active in our parish, where I mainly look after children. I would also like to start babysitting soon.
Of course, I would also like to share some of our German traditions with you, for example St Martin or Nikolaus.
I'm really looking forward to the exciting moments in America and hope for a wonderful time. I am excited to become part of your family!
