Life in the U.S. / Thank You Thursdays

Thank You Thursday – Kan from Thailand

Aspect Foundation’s inbox is flooded with notes from students expressing their gratitude for the experience they have had on student exchange. On Thursdays, we post one of these notes, sharing the “warm fuzzies” with all of you. Below, Kan from Thailand takes the opportunity to thank those she has made connections with during her time in America.

“Since my first step here in this country, never have I ever felt unwelcome. Everyone, Aspect foundation, my local coordinator and of course my host family really took care of me well. They always support and provide help for me whenever I seek it.  While being here at Bainbridge Island (the place that makes me feel like it is my second homeland) I was so grateful with all of the help that every person provided me. I will never feel happier and more lucky to have had a chance to do this exchange program. Thank you for all of your care, any concerns of mine were all solved by your help and when I say you, I mean everyone that I’ve ever met here. I’m so thankful for the way every individual welcomed and made me feel warm, safe and sound all the time. I don’t know if destiny is a real thing but if it is then it was such a wonderful destiny to be here and know every one of you.”
