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

“Hello, my name is Trung. I am 15 years old and I am from Vietnam. I’m quite friendly, polite, and imaginative. My favorite hobbies are swimming, cooking, and scuba diving. The thing that I look forward most during my exchange year is to have a friendly family and community around me. I want to experience the American culture. The number 1 goal that I’m hoping to achieve is to have a solid foundation to my studies so I can get a job in the future.”

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