My name is Ferdous, and I am currently studying at abroad as an exchange student. I am staying with a host family who has a four year old daughter. So far, I have had experienced many things, whether it was trying new things, for example, skiing, sledding, snowshoes hiking and joining the rock climbing team. One of the things I enjoy doing so far is having conversations with people about my country. By doing that, I notice I could teach many people about what Somaliland is, my culture and my religion and at the same time learn about theirs too.
