About this Student
My name is Hilma, and I would love to get the experience of a lifetime with an exchange year.
I am involved in the student council. Although academic achievement is important to me I try to focus most of my free time on being active and I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.
I have many hobbies and interests, I play the guitar and the piano and enjoy music a lot. During my exchange year I would love to join many different clubs at school if possible.
Other than music I really enjoy outdoor activities like alpine skiing, climbing, traveling and hiking. Maybe this adventurous spirit runs in the family. For example, during the summer my 84-year-old grandma brought me hiking to the summit of one of the highest mountains in the area where she lives. I also like to exercise like going to the gym and doing cross country running. I used to play basketball, which is something I hope to be able to pick up again during my exchange year.
Going on an exchange year has always been a dream of mine and now that it is becoming more and more of a reality I am looking forward to it even more. I hope that I can learn more about American culture, people and myself during this year. I would love to become a part of my host family and make many new friends. I’m looking forward to my exchange year a lot and I’m very excited and curious about it.
