My Travel Story

by: Adriana Ismaili Start Date: Jan 31, 2018 - End Date: Jan 30, 2019
Hello! My name is Adriana and my family has been volunteering with Youth For Understanding, an exchnage organization, for the past few years by hosting exchnage students. Ehen my mother was a senior she went on exchnage to Belgium and now, after my senior year, I want to go on exchnage to Sweden to further my study in music by going to a high school specializing in the arts. Sweden has one of the best school systems in the world and a very unique culture I'd like to experience.

I'm from a part of Texas where most people haven't been outside of the country and have never known or seen differnt cultures and I would like to inspire other students to go on exchange to see what life is like for a teenager somewhere else, have a second family, and be able to make new connections around the world; or even just encourage families in the community to host an exchange student and be able to expierence a diferent culture that way.

I'm asking for your help because my family can't afford much of the cost for exchange; but, my mom having lived in Europe and my dad being an immigrant from Europe, have encouraged me to be able to expirence a new lifestyle. Thank you so much for taking your time to read this and I appricitate anything you can donate.
