Beatrice's Story - Exchange Student

Coming to the US was like having my dreams come true. You know when you're a kid dreaming about becoming an astronaut or a doctor? Well my dream was to come to the US. When I started high school and found out about exchange programs I realized that everything I had always dreamed about was possible. Coming to the US for me was crucial. It turned me into a better person. America is a special country, it's the country where everything is possible, where dreams come true but without amazing host families it's hard to realize kids' dreams. I am beyond grateful for this experience; I am glad that I got to meet special people that proved me how much the American dream is reality in the US, that showed me what it means to be hospitable and that I could be part of their family.

Beatrice Caressa, Rome Italy.
