My mother has told me many stories about living in Gelnhausen, Germany. She lived with her family from grades 5 to 7 because my Grandmother was stationed there at one point during her 13 years in the US Army. She told me about the delicious food, the gorgeous countryside, and how friendly the Germans she interacted with were. She also told me how freely she explored the native community around her American housing. Having this opportunity to actually experience even just a taste of what Germany is like will help me to really understand what she saw and lived for 1 and 1/2 years of her life. I was invited on this trip by my AP World History teacher. It would also be great to see a place we spoke about in class and really explore historical landmarks about which I've only read. I think seeing a little more of the world will open my mind and my heart to another culture and deepen my understanding of how alike or different I am to teenagers from another country. I will get to taste their food and listen to their music. I will get to see how they celebrate and how they interact with each other on a daily basis. I am so excited for this opportunity. Thank you so much for your contribution.
