Living the American dream!
"After finishing school, I felt like I needed a change and what better than relocating to not only another country, but another continent? As a child it was my dream to live in America and now I had a chance to do it. I left what I knew and moved to America to become part of a new family and culture thanks to the help of Cultural Care. It was all that I dreamed of and more! My host family were amazing and treated me as part of their family and I loved the kids I looked after as if they were my own.
Through Cultural Care get togethers and being allocated a “buddy/big sister” I made lots of new friends, many of which I still speak to on a regular basis. I got to travel both with my host family and with my friends, and saw some of the most amazing places. At times it felt like I was on a movie set because everything seemed so surreal, San Francisco, LA, New York and many more places are just what you imagine them to be like.
I would recommend this experience to everyone! I still try and phone and visit my host family as often as I can. The memories I made will live with me forever!"
