Hi,
I’m doing great so far. This year has been a different year for me. I went America as an exchange student and my experience is going well. I’m learning a lot about American food, traditions, and their seasons as well. Their schooling system is fairly similar to my School (Abaarso) and I’m liking it. Thank you for donating!

When asked what is the most important lesson he’s learned at Abaarso, he took a moment to reply. “I learned how to be patient when you meet challenges.”
