My YFU Family Is The Best Because…

Every single member of the family supported me during my exchange year and they still do even though I live so far away from them. I feel really honored that I had the opportunity to live with my family.

Every character is a big inspiration to my lifestyle. The best thing about my host family is that I never had a conflict with anyone which made my year even more awesome. The best moment was that one time when my host mom came over to Germany last year and met my family here back home. She totally got along with my German parents and sisters and loved it so much here, that she wants to come over again, but with the entire host family. There is no doubt that my host family will miss the marriage that of my sisters or even of myself in the future. Of course, we wouldn’t miss a marriage of my host sisters in the future, either! Thank you for everything, what a life experience!!
