“My name is Charlotte. I am 17 years old and I have been in America for almost two years now. Having the opportunity to spend a second year in my new home is awesome. When I came here the second time I already had a great group of friends, was able to join the sideline cheer team again and already knew what I was doing. To be honest, I didn’t feel like a lost puppy! I also got to be part of the varsity competitive cheer team at my high school.
One year in another country is great but during the second year, I really got to enjoy everything a little more. Especially because the language and the communication is not a problem anymore. If someone would ask me if I would spend two years away from home again I would tell them that it definitely was the best decision!
I also get to graduate with a real diploma this year. My classes are a little harder this year than the ones I took last year but a little challenge is always good. It pushed me and my English improved even more. All in all the past two years have been the best years of my life and I don’t have any regrets! ”
