At International Experience, we believe that learning about other cultures, languages, and customs is the best way to dispel prejudices and embrace global citizenship.

“My name is Sukran, I am 15-years-old, and I come from Turkey. I’m a social person who likes going out and being with friends, but I’m also very ambitious and tend to set goals that I usually can reach. I love horses, and I’ve been around them since I was 3 or 4 years old. It’s by far my biggest passion and something I hope to continue in America. I also love painting but I’m not super good at it.

During my exchange year, I  hope to improve my English, and learn about American culture. I am really looking forward to seeing what America has to offer! I cant wait to meet my Host Family and share my culture with them.”

Will you be Sukran’s Host Family this school year?
