Life in the U.S. / Thank You Thursdays

Thank You Thursday – Syed from Bangladesh

For this week’s Thank You Thursday, Syed from Bangladesh is sharing is favorite memory with his American host family so far! Syed is studying in Utah with the Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.

My favourite exchange experience was when I celebrated my first ever Christmas with my host family. We went on a trip where we did a lot of hiking and had loads of fun. On Christmas morning we sat around the Christmas tree that we decorated and gave each other wonderful presents in holiday cheer. These will be one of the most memorable days of my life and I’m grateful for this wonderful experience.
