My Travel Story

Education focus

I do not want to be limited to one country in my education. I have found out that there's something about being an exchange student that brings to your life. And where I live( Bosnia) we have very poor education so I want experience life outside. I strive to help other people find their way in the world. I can't explain how much this exchange would impact me and those around me. So 2 years ago my cousin moved to the Netherlands and I found out just about everything there is about the Netherlands. Then I started learning the language over internet. Now I could say that I'm fluent in Dutch for the most part in everyday conversations. When I found out about the Netherlands I fell in love with it's culture, people and basically everything except "Wilders". And now that I found out I could make me dream come true in my high school years I became opsessed with trying out different ways to spend an educational year there. And then because I live in Bosnia the only possible way to get there was over this one company AFS. That's the company that provides an exchange but I found out it would be too expensive for my family's pocket so I found out about this site.
