My name is Emma Knight and I was raised in the small northern
My decision to study abroad with AFS was based on the positive feedback that I had received from past AFSers. I have heard nothing but good things about AFS and when I went to their website, I am proud to say that I was then positive that they were a good match for me, offering me the perfect experience of studying abroad. I have no expectations of my trip abroad other than I know that I’m going to learn a lot. I am going to physically and emotionally immerse myself in a new family, a new culture, and a new language. I am curious about how this experience will change my views on life and our country as I know it. I plan to really put myself out there while I am abroad so that I can get the full experience and bring everything back to my community. I plan to try new cuisine, be apart of new traditions and create long-lasting friendships. When I return, I plan to speak at my high school and encourage others to welcome a new culture into their life.
To cover the cost of my trip abroad, I have developed a fundraising plan that will help add to my parents’ contribution. My plan includes: summer job, community fundraising dinner, a huge garage sale, corporate sponsors and you, my blog buddies. Whatever you choose to contribute to my trip, I am extremely thankful. To end my first blog, I would like to say thank you. Over and out….for now.
