Swimming, dancing, running, reading and listening to musicLetter to my Host Family
Melissa has two big passions; swimming and cats! Melissa used to have 5 cats in her family but unfortunately is down to 1 cat at present so a household with cats would be a wonderful thing. Even if Melissa only swims once a week, she loves it and considers it her ‘passion in life.’ she been swimming since she was four years old. Melissa lives with her mom, dad and brother and is very family orientated. She loves to spend time with her family as they travel to different places to explore, both locally and further afar. Melissa is an excellent student and one day she would like to be a physiotherapist and is hoping to also get a second degree in law, as that’s always been a dream for her. Melissa knows that her year in America is one that she will never forget, and she intends to make it a special year for not only herself but also her host family. She is really looking forward to meeting her host family!

Swimming, skiing, running, eating, traveling, and video games - ASLetter to my Host Family
My Name is Florian and I come from a small town in France. I am happy, sociable, attentive, athletic and motivated. I live with my parents, who both work in a bank with no pets as I am allergic to them especially cats. I love to eat! I really enjoy sushi, hamburgers and Mexican food. While on exchange I hope to continue swimming. I train three hours a week and participate in competitions. My family and I also enjoy skiing and we go every year. I'm excited to choose my classes in American school and hope to take computer programming and science. I also like to play video games with friends, eat pizza and watch movies. I'm looking forward to meeting and spending a year in your country in order to discover daily life of America.

Dancing, Latin dancing, piano, reading, riding horses, tennis, card and board games, making cards, travelLetter to my Host Family
I live in a big house with a very big garden with my Mom, my step father, and my two siblings. We like to play games together, go swimming and to amusement parks. When I am with my father it is we also have a garden. I like to play with our neighbors dog. I am the biggest fan of the "Schwabisch Hall Unicorns" (an American football team), the best one in Germany! They won the German bowl 4 times. I often go to games with my father and my brother. My hobbies are dancing, reading, riding horses, playing tennis and playing the piano. I have been dancing for 2 years. I can be shy at first but after some time I am a girl who likes to laugh a lot. My family and friends say I am reliable, humorous, curious, patient, prudent and creative. I would like to be a part of your family too. I wish we will have a lot of fun and we could talk about everything.

Field hockey club, I play three times a week, school choir, singing lessons, baking, cooking - EMLetter to my Host Family
I’m Julia and I’m 15. I love sports and I love traveling. I grew up speaking German and Danish at home and I learned English and French in school (but my English is a lot better than my French!). I had the opportunity to go to boarding school in Denmark like my brother but I would rather go to America and live with a family like yours. I really like traveling to visit my family in Denmark and England. Visiting England gives me a good opportunity to practice speaking English to my cousin there. In Germany, I play field hockey but I want to try new sports in America. I’m also looking forward to experiencing my first Thanksgiving! I like to bake and cook and I’d be happy to cook some German recipes for you. I’m excited about becoming a part of my new host family!

I’m Federico! I’m 16 years old and from a small town in Northern Italy. I love spending time with my parents and sister. We love to travel together and go hiking. I’ve been to London for the last two summers to study English. I’ve also traveled to America, specifically Boston, New York, Washington, San Francisco, LA, San Diego, and Las Vegas. In school, my favorite subjects are math and history. I love sports, especially soccer and Muay Thai. It would be great if I could play football or baseball during my year abroad! Also, my mom is helping me learn some favorite Italian recipes that I can’t wait to share with my new family and friends! When you first meet me I can be reserved, but then I open up once I get to know someone. I’m looking to gain so much out of this experience, including a new found confidence!
