Meet Leni


Letter for my future Host Family

Dear host family!


My name is Leni, I am sixteen years old and i am so thankful to have the opportunity to spend a semester in the USA! It has always been my dream to go to a high school and experience the life in America. I am from Germany and I life with my parents, my little brother who is 13 years old, my two cats and my dog. I have a very good relationship with my family. My brother is not just my brother but he is also a very good friend of mine! We can talk about everything and i really enjoy having him as my sibling. But I also love my pets. My cats love to spend time in my room and I’m always very happy when they decide to sleep in my bed. I also love to take walks with my dog! We would really miss something if we didn’t already have her in our life. In my familly we all have our own things to do, but we try to do family trips once in a while. My dad loves to go hiking in the mountains and my mother loves going to the beach. Every summer we drive to Italy or Croatia. I am like my mother. I love the beach too. That’s why i am so excited to go to Florida! One thing about me is my love for adventures. I would love you to show me as many things as possible about the USA so i can learn a lot about your country. But i am also very calm and i can be very flexible. I get along with almost everyone so I’m sure we will be great friends. My favorite things to do when I am bored are singing and running or just sport in general. I am a member of a singing club and we often sing in church. Sport helps me relax a lot when I’m stressed, especially when I’m stressed about school. I am currently in 10th grade and I take school seriously.

My favorite subjects are English and German and I am generally very ambitious. I really enjoy riding in my horse club but i don’t like to participate in competitions. I just do it for fun. Other things about me are that i like nature and phoptography. I will definetly bring my camera to Florida, so get ready to take some pictures with me! I also like reading, but often I don’t have time for it because i have so much other things to do. Like shopping with my friends or just spending time with them. In the summer we love swimming in the nearest lake and in the winter we love to go ice skating.

Although I have many friends, the one I will miss the most when leaving home is my best friend. But I know i will meet a lot of cool new people in Florida and I am so excited! During my exchange year i would love to learn about the American culture, including Thanksgiving and Halloween! I would also love to teach you how we celebrate certain holidays in germany! Of course I am willing to help with household chore! I am a very clean person so you don’t have to be worried about my room not being clean! Thank you so much for taking your time to read my letter!


Sincerely, Len
