Letter for my future Host Family

Dear family.

My name is Maria Helene, I am from Germany and I will be 17 years old at time of arrival. I have a much older brother and sister. They both don't live at home any more. It would be great for me to have a brother or sister in my host familiy. We have a little dog, so pets are welcome for me!

I have been very interested in the USA for a long time. My mother had lived there for a while and had told me a lot about it. This is why I want to get to know your country myself. I love horses and I have been doing horse back riding for many years. I was even allowed to accustom a young horse to a rider. And I was one of the first to ride it! So I am looking foreward to coming to Texas and I hopefully can continue riding. I also love dancing and I have been in a Showdancing Club for seven years, where we do performances every year. Our next performance will be in February where we show a Cheerleader dance. I also like music. I have been playing the trumpet for four years and I was part of a church band. But I quit three years ago. Also I am taking part in a church choir. In my free time I like reading books and seeing my friends. We often go downtown and meet other friends. Then we like to go shopping. I am very interested in other countries and I love travelling. I have seen quite a bit of Europe already, me and my familiy travel all around Europe in our Camper Van during school vacation.

I am very much looking foreward to meeting my host family and experience the American life!!

Best regards
