Life in the U.S. / Thank You Thursdays

Thank You Thursday- Marie from France

January 2021 is underway and it’s Thursday! Our Aspect Foundation inbox has thank you notes from many of our students, current and former, and on Thursday we like to share the positive things these wonderful students have to say. This week we bring you the words of another current French student, Marie. Marie is a senior spending her final year of high school in the fishing friendly state of Michigan!

“This picture is from my first American Thanksgiving! It was such a great day and I know I will do that in France from now on! Just like this picture is showing, I feel more than thankful for them and it was very nice to live a new experience from another culture.”

I would like to thank my host family. Since I’ve got here, they have been nothing but supportive and loving. We truly care about each other and I am so thankful to have them as a second family. I will love them forever and I truly appreciate every single moment that we get to spend together through this unique experience.

Marie said, “We were going to the restaurant for my host brother’s birthday. It was an amazing night and we ate A LOT!! We had so much fun and I will remember this moment we spent all together. “

I feel extremely lucky to share my everyday life with these amazing people and I sincerely think that this year is the best thing that ever happened to me. So to anyone who would like to live such an incredible adventure, just go for it!!
