's Letter

Dear my host family Hello! My name is Mikako. I’m from Japan. I'm going to join an exchange program in your country. First of all, I’d like to introduce myself. I have many hobbies. First, I love watching musicals. I love actors singing, dancing, and acting. My favorite musical is “Crazy For You”, and I belong to the drama club at my school. Second, I like taking pictures. When I was a junior high school student, I belonged to the photo club. I always take pictures whenever I go out. Third, I enjoy cooking. Especially I make sweets a lot. I like cooking because I can make everyone happy. For example, I make a cake for family members’ birthdays. My family will be happy if I make it for their birthdays. Fourth, I like music. I have been taking violin and piano lessons. I played music that she likes on my mother’s birthday two years ago. I am happy every time I can make people happy with my performance. I enjoy music not only for playing but also for listening. I often listen to K-pop and English songs. I have drama club activities on weekdays, and I study for exams or go out with my friends. I sometimes go to Karaoke or eat out with them. I would also like to introduce my family. There are three members in my family, and we are a happy family. My father is Daikichi. “Daikichi” means the best fortune, a happy thing in Japanese. He is very good at computers. He is a very kind person. My mother is Mijung. She is a Korean. She often teaches me the Korean language and culture. She is a fun person. I would like to play some sports or go out with you. I’m looking forward to taking part in traditional American events and parties. I also want to see the vast nature of your country. There are some things I can do for you. For example, I can cook traditional Japanese dishes. In addition, I can teach you about Korea too. And I will do housework as a member of your family. Through this exchange program, I would like to experience various cultures and gain a broader perspective. I am willing to jump into a completely new world and grow up as a person. Also, I want to develop my initiative through the exchange year. I will express my opinions actively and participate in various extracurricular activities. I believe overcoming cultural differences will be the most challenging part of being an exchange student, but I want to try different customs and habits actively. By doing so, I can learn the benefits of new adventure. I have two goals. One is to help people with medicine and medical care. I have been interested in science experiments since I was a child, so it is my pleasure to be able to help people through scientific research. The other is to travel around the world. I'm interested in other countries' languages and cultures. And I want to see those countries with my own eyes. I want to connect people from different countries and support new developments. Thank you for reading this letter to the end. I am looking forward to seeing you! Sincerely, Mikako
