Letter to my Host Family

I think a person with a sound body and mind who is generous to help others can live a blissful life. At school, I am a good student and my favorite subject is math. I was elected class monitor by my classmates so I host weekly meetings. I also take part in a Model UN committee where we organized activities and help others. At home, I help my mom with cooking and chores. I have been learning and practicing Tai Chi for 8 years and enjoy it very much. I also entered a martial arts competition in Hong Kong and won the first prize! I also love sports such as swimming, skiing, badminton, skateboarding, and cycling. I went on a 150-mile cycling trip with my mom who gave me great encouragement along the way. I like being in plays at school and reading books. I love animals too and like to take care of them. I am grateful for this opportunity and hope to spend a happy year with you!

Letter to my Host Family

I am very grateful and excited about having a chance to live in the USA for half of a year! I can hardly wait to make new friends and experience everyday life in an American family! In my home country, after school, I attend an activity that teaches you how to become a mediator. This is means when there is a problem between students, i can help them solve their problems so they can get along again. When I graduate high school, I want to go to college to become an elementary teacher. I love children and right now I have been babysitting two little boys for the last 3 years. I find traveling very fascinating and learning about many cultures. Thank you for considering being my host family.
