Jonathan from Sweden
About this Student
My name is Jonathan and I have decided that I would like to spend a year in the U.S in order to get more life experience but also meet new friends and people.
On my free time I enjoy working out. Going for runs, going to the gym and doing other kinds of physical activities are something that make me happy. I also practice a Swedish sport called Floorball that is sort of like hockey, it’s physical and you have a stick, but it’s not performed on ice, it’s a ball instead of a puck and you don’t wear any protection. Since I live in the south of Sweden skiing isn’t a part of my daily life but on the winter holidays, I love going out north to do it. As most teenagers do, I like hanging out with friends. Cars and motorbikes are something that I have an interest for as well.
Doing an exchange year feels like a good way to get some life experience and explore how other people view different things in society. In my exchange year I look forward to experience American culture, like sports (watch and perform), food, cars etc. I suppose it can be summed up by saying that I basically just want to experience a lot of new things. I look forward to get new friends meet new people, see new stuff and so on.
