I have wanted to study abroad for a while now, being in other cultures is so fascinating to me because I get to live life in the world of others. As I am young I think it is the perfect time for me to do something like this that will really help build who I am as a person and develop a greater understanding and appreciaion for the world we live in. Exchanging is not a popular thing for kids where I live so I want to be able to go and experince this and make a difference in my community. I chose this destination because it is not somewhere that many people go and it fascinates me the people and the culture there and I would love to learn more about it. This means so much to me because so many people have discouraged me from doing it that I just want to make it happen and prove them all wrong.
