If you are ready to create memories for a lifetime...
Meet Javier


Letter for my future Host Family

My name’s Javier, but everybody calls me Javi.


I’m 14 years old, and I’m from Madrid, Spain. I live in a little neighborhood called Las Tablas, which is in the north of Madrid. I live with my parents. I’m an only child but I would love to have siblings because I think that we can help each other. I love traveling with my family. For me, my family is everything because I believe they’re my constant support system, and they are not going to let me down. A friend may leave you but your family will forever stay with you.


I love doing sports and I couldn’t imagine life without them. I play a lot of sports but my favorite is basketball. Also, I play for my school team and I am a point guard. Another sport that I love is skiing. It’s a sport I’ve been doing since I was two years old. Aside from this, I also play soccer as any Spanish boy would. However, I am not really good at it. Jajaja.


I grew up having been exposed to diverse cultures. My mother is from Bogota, Colombia and my dad is from Madrid, Spain. My parents are caring. They look after me and they are very hardworking. They are the best parents in the world! Although I don’t have any siblings, I’m still happy to have my paternal grandfather in Spain and my maternal grandmother in Colombia. I don’t see my grandmother often but she’s also very kind. I often visit my grandfather. He lives in Madrid but he also spends the summer in his vacation house, which is in Malaga. I love him very much.


Last summer, I joined a summer camp in Pennsylvania. The whole experience was just amazing! I loved the culture and the people. I think Americans are naturally more sociable than the people in my country. I only stayed there for three weeks; but in that little time, I learned a lot of your culture. This is one of the reasons why I really want to study there. 


To my future family, I hope to see you soon and spend the whole academic year with you!


Thank you very much.
