LETTER FROM Alissa

Alissa

My name is Alissa, I am a girl who lives in a little town in the northern part of my state. Originally I am from a bigger town but i moved to the smaller town about 8 years ago. I live together with my family, which includes my Mom, my Dad, my older brother and my dog.

My mother works as a nurse for children in the hospital and my father sells trucks for a manufacturer. My brother is going to university already.

At the moment I am attending High School. My favorite classes are physical education and the languages english and latin.

Even though I like P.E. I am not very active at the moment, because unfortunately I have not found the right sport for me yet! I tried a lot of different types of sports but none of them were interesting enough for me. Hopefully I am gonna find the perfect sport in the USA! At the moment I am only doing some exercises at home like cycling and go outside with my dog. Right now I am more the laying-on-the-couch-and-eat-something type of person, if you know what I mean ;)! But hopefully this will change.

My favorite hobbies are meeting friends and I absolutely love traveling. This year I went to London for a week and in 2012 I even visited California with my family. Besides this, every year I go on a camping trip as a supervisor. There are up to 60 kids who want to have a week full of adventure and fun. I really like working with kids and this is a good way to be active in our church.

To my characteristics: I am really helpful to the people around me even though I am shy at the beginning. But do not worry, if i get to know you a little better it just disappears. My parents say I am trustworthy and reliable! My brother says I am desorganized but he also says he can always count on me. My grandma calls me a lovely young woman.

Since my brother went to California for 10 months, I always wanted to have the same experience. He had obviously a great year and has made a huge change! I want to have the same change and want to have more self-confidence. I want to get to know a different type of life since my brother always tells me stories of the nice people and the good lifestyle in the United States. I want to meet new people and forget Germany for a year.

I hope to find a second family which allows me to be a part of them. I am open for a new type of living and want to get to know the famous American lifestyle. Hopefully this letter was able to help you to get a first impression of me and my family. I am really looking forward to this trip and my biggest wish is to find a nice host family.

I cannot wait to hear from you!
