Thank You Thursday – Giulia, Najmina, and Marion

As the sun shines bright in this July edition, get ready for a refreshing treat! Join us as we highlight heartfelt thank-you letters from three remarkable 2022/23 students – Giulia, Najmina, Marion – who reflect on their amazing year thanks to their host family, community, and International Coordinator.

I will always be thankful to my host family, my friends, and in general to this experience. These months were the best of my life. I met new people, tried new food, lived new cultures, and traveled a lot. It was fun, scary, incredible, and so useful for all the rest of my life.

Thank you so much for being so welcoming and kind to me. I learned so much through all of you this year, I’m so glad it happened to me. See you next year hopefully!
