Letter to my Host Family

Hello! My name is Gevorg and I come from Armenia located in Eastern Europe. I am proud to represent my country as a scholarship winner of the prestigious FLEX program! I am beyond excited to visit America and make new friends. Both of my parents are teachers and I guess I get my love of learning from them! I love history, photography and making movies. I will never get bored of exploring new places. I like to read great literature and watch movies because they inspire me! It helps me to be able to cheer people up. I also cheer them up by making smoothies and cookies! I love to be positive and taking a walk in the woods often helps me feel positive. I look forward to meeting my new host family! I am sure we will have some good times and have a good joke together as well.

Letter to my Host Family

I am grateful to FLEX and you for giving me this opportunity to learn about the people and culture of the US as well as the opportunity to teach Americans about our culture and our people. I am a happy, hardworking, outgoing, and responsible person. I always enjoy helping others. I have a fantastic family. We enjoy spending a lot of time together, taking walks with the dog, and playing board games. My younger brothers are the best. They always make me laugh. When I have free time, I enjoy painting. It helps me to slow down and look at the world differently. Although my interests are many, I do not know where my future will lead me. I am hoping to discover a little of that during my exchange.
