School Story:

As an AFS exchange student, it was a year of learning new things in all areas for me - new family, new environment, new society, new school system (from British which emphasized memorizing to US which emphasized thinking- never had a clue about that algebra though!). I enjoyed the team closeness I developed in the track team.
