My name is Magdalena Molnar, and I am a high school exchange student from Austria. I have been living with a host family and attending high school in West Palm Beach for the second semester of the school year 2015-16.
I just wanted to say thank you to my amazing host family, the Higgins, and the entire Wellington community.
When I arrived last January, I was so nervous about finding new friends and living in a completely new place, but they were so welcoming! They made me feel like I was a part of their family right away.
Not only is my host family fantastic, but the entire community has been there for me through this amazing journey. From the time I arrived until now, I have loved getting to know everyone. My favorite memory was when my host family and I made a trip to the Bahamas. It was so much fun, and I really enjoyed it. I´m thankful for all they have done for me and for all their support. It really means a lot to me, and I know that it is definitely not usual to have such a caring and loving host family!
I know that when I leave in June, I will not be saying goodbye to just a host family. I will just say, “see you later” to my new lifelong friends and second family, since I am sure we will see each other again soon. Thank you again to the Higgins family and the Wellington community for my amazing year!
