Above and Abroad

Juniors Stella Grispo, Andrea Medoro, Nele Stoetzner and senior Ronja Bosy all abandoned their comfort zones when they left their home countries and came to the U.S. The four exchange students will be spending the entire school year in Texas. “When I was younger, it was always my dream to live one day in the U.S,” Stoetzner said. “My neighbor [spent] one year in Australia and she told me a lot about [the exchange program]. I wanted to do an exchange to the U.S for the experience and to improve my English [and] to meet new people.”

Students from all around the world discuss their American experiences, share thoughts on exchange program.

Spending almost an entire year in a new country, speaking a different language and attending an unfamiliar school is an ordeal that many people cannot vision themselves experiencing. However, juniors Nele Stoetzner, Andrea Medoro, Stella Grispo and senior Ronja Bosy all abandoned their comfort zones when they left their home countries and arrived in the U.S. All four of the exchange students will be spending the full school year in the United States, passing time with their host families and embarking on adventures throughout Texas.
