Volleyball, skiing, horseback riding, dogs, baking, paddle surfing, traveling and walking

Letter to my Host Family

My name is Martina and I live in Spain in the northeast near the sea. I’m a girl who loves volleyball, watching series, listening to music and going for walks. I also love taking pictures, especially of the sky when the sun is rising or when it's getting dark. When I’m with my friends I’m usually the one who makes plans and we usually go to restaurants to have dinner after school on Fridays and then we go for an afternoon snack to a pastry shop and in winter we always like to drink hot chocolate. The reason why I would like to go to the USA is because I really like to learn new cultures and it’s a country that I really liked since I was really young and it would be an amazing experience to me. I also want to go to improve my English because I always wanted to have a high English level and living in the USA for a year is a very important opportunity to achieve this. This is why I want to thank my host family for hosting me and for their hospitality and also for helping me to live this experience and achieve this which is like a dream come true for me. KS

Interests

Field hockey, skiing, coding, film, outdoor trips, cats (I have 8 of them!)

Letter to my Host Family

My name is Damiano, I'm sixteen years old and I live in the north west part of Italy where lots of the traditional foods are produced. I really like eating, I always tried new foods before knowing what they were. I have never complained about eating a vegetables or a new food. I manage to stay fit because I do a lot of physical activity. When I was young, I tried lots of different sports but in the end I have chose field hockey and I have been playing it for nine years so far. I also enjoy, a lot, skiing during the winter season or whenever I can my dad and I always go to the ski slope together and we stay there all day until we are exhausted for the fatigue. I like my school a lot, in fact, we do a lot of laboratory experiments expecially during physics an chemistry I have managed to become a little chemist myself, and I am really happy and proud of it. I don’t really like social media, I usually use them just to chat with my friends (for the happiness of my parents), but I watch many videos about: video games, anime, news, musical videos. I have got 8 cats that I cuddle and spend time with. I would like to challenge myself and try to learn as much as possible and make new bonds with people from the other part of the world. Moreover, I would really like to participate to a real Thanksgiving lunch!

Interests

Hip-hop dancing, horse riding, dogs, cooking

Letter to my Host Family

I would describe myself as a spontaneous and open person who lives out the motto of life "If not now, when?". Dancing is a part of my life since I was a little child. Since 2017 I am a part of a hip-hop dance group. When I am alone I like to listen to music, because it relaxes me and inspires me. My favorite book series is Harry Potter. It taught me to never give up, to believe in myself, and that it's okay to ask for help if needed. Besides all my hobbies, I really enjoy traveling and seeing new places. I am really interested to learn about your religion and join you to your place of worship. This would be a fantastic opportunity to really get to know you and a whole new culture. I also have the chance to meet new people and to get formative impressions of your religion. I am a vegetarian because animals are really important to me and therefore I couldn’t continue to eat meat without a guilty conscience.  I am looking forward to get a dog when I am an adult. If you have a dog, or any other pet you can count me in of taking care of it!
