Hi everyone!

There has been a bit of a commotion going on with my host family placement so I thought I would update you all on what's been happening. Around February this year, I was told that I was going to be staying with a family in Kentucky, but was not told much else. Then in April, I was told that the school was being difficult and because of that, I was going to be moved to another host family who also lived in Kentucky. So this new host family lived in Bardstown and I had started to get to know my host parents quite well - I even got into contact with my host brother from Mexico! (If you saw my previous "Host Family" post, it was regarding this family). Then a few days ago a got a message from my host mum - who also happens to be the area co-coordinator for my first host family - which says that the school finally changed their mind which means I will be staying with them now instead. I don't know much about them as I haven't received the paperwork yet, so all I currently know is that they live somewhere near Bowling Green. But when I receive more information I will be sure to make a new blog post about it!

Hi everyone!

So last Saturday I had an interview with a local coordinator here in Adelaide! She just asked the basic questions like what I feel like I will get out of an exchange program, what I can bring to my host family, etc. She kept hinting about being placed in Wisconsin, however I doubt I actually will! Haha 😂 At the end of the interview she said that I had been accepted and should receive further information in regards to my departure and host family in the following months. 

So far so good!!

Hello everyone!

My name is Sarah Brakmanis and I am from Adelaide, Australia. I will be going on an exchange program to the USA for a semester with Student Exchange Australia & New Zealand in 2017 and this blog is designed to keep my family and friends at home updated on my day-to-day life whilst I am away, along with allowing me to record my memories which I can look back on in the future.

In regards to my exchange, I have sent off my application forms and am waiting for confirmation from the company, therefore I do not have any information on my placement or anything yet. If all goes well, I should depart in August of 2017 and stay for five-six months depending on the program. However, I will keep this blog updated and will share any future information and processes I need to go through for my exchange program to America. 

Although my exchange is practically a year away, I am already very excited and cannot wait to experience life as an American teenager. I've been reading so many blogs from other exchange students and I can't wait to live it myself!

So until next time,

Sarah
