AFS Exchange Student Kathy: Getting Amped for Summer in Chile
Orientation was so much fun today, I got an AFS t-shirt! But really, the best part was being able to talk to the Returnees who just got back and were able to answer our questions and share their own experiences. So much advice in such a short period of time...
- Research as much as I can but don't have too many expectations,
- Make an effort to make plans with friends and be included,
- Pay attention to little pieces of culture,
- Always keep your safety in mind and use good judgment and common sense.
It was really cool to have the chance to talk to some of the other kids who are getting ready to go abroad. Read more.
