This letter is officially to my host family, because I am so thankful for them. I am so blessed with such a loving, peaceful and kind family. We have two different religions, but they brought us so close together and I am so thankful that you showed me so much more of myself and that you introduced me to my second family and your church.
But on this way I also want to thank my high school varsity cheer team for accepting me as a Team Manager — I love you girls! I was thrown in by really weird conditions but you acted like I was there from the beginning.
And special thanks to every single one I met in the last two months, you all love and help me, even when I forget your names sometimes, you are awesome!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! To everyone supporting me on this experience 🙂
