To introduce myself, and to start off this blog, I thought that the "exchange student tag" would be great. I have seen other exchange students do this before, both on blogs and on Youtube. I hope you find this interesting, and that you feel like you got to know me a little better :)
What is you name, age and nationality?
My name is Anna, I am sixteen years old and I am from Norway.
Which organization are you going with?
I am going with an organization called EF, Education First.
How long are you going to be on exchange?
I am going to be on exchange for a total of ten moths!
Where are you spending your exchange year?
I am going to spend my year in North-Carolina, USA.
Have you gotten your host family yet?
Yes! I actually got mine pretty fast, I got my host family early November. And I am SO happy with them!
When are you leaving for your exchange?
I am not really sure when I am leaving, but i believe I leave som time between mid-July, early August. I am going to be a part of the class of '19, which means that I am going on mye exchange the school year 18/19.
Are you going to the Welcome Days?
No, I am actually going to the EF Camp instead. It is 10 days instead of only 3, and I am super excited!
What are you looking forward to the most?
I am really looking forward to meet my host family for the first time and to really be a part of their family. I am also looking forward to all the new experiences I am going to get, and to see new places and meet new people. It is also going to be super cool to feel the "high school spirit" like I see in all the American movies!
Which places do you want to visit while you're in the USA?
Oh, there is so many places I want to go! But the "main places" I want to visit must be the place where I am going to live, North-Carolina, and I also want to visit New York. Luckily, since I am going to the EF Camp, I will get the opportunity to visit New York.
Is it many days until you leave?
Both yes, and no. It is about a litte over half a year, which sounds soooo long, but when I am leaving I bet it will feel like I didn't get enough time to say goodbye to all of my friends and family.
Something you're looking forward to when it comes to school?
YES! It may sound weird that I am so excited for school, but the schools in America looks so cool (at least in the movies). I can't wait to go to homecoming, to feel the "high school spirit" and to watch school football games. Overall I am just super excited about school!
Do you think you'll get homesick?
Of course, but that is just a part I have to deal with. I just have to remember that living in another county with another family isn't worse or better, its just different.
I hope you enjoyed this tag,
