When I first arrived in America, I did not know what activities to take part in, let alone where to begin. Luckily, however, my host family suggested that I enroll in a singing class. They said that it would be a fun experience, the teacher was really nice and the class consisted of talented kids. After hearing this, I decided to sign up for the singing class.
One day, while we were in class, our teacher handed out flyers for an upcoming singing competition. At the time, I felt that I was unready to participate in the event and therefore turned down the offer. My friends, however, thought otherwise. They said many encouraging things and finally convinced me to join the competition. By the end of the event, our school had managed to secure a position in the top 5.
I would like to give a big thanks to my host family. No matter what activity I took part in or what I wanted to do, whether it be during the day or in the evening, they were always there to send me off and pick me up. I really appreciate the support they showed me during my stay with them. And because of this, my year as an exchange student was one of the best years of my life.
