“It is so amazing here in New Zealand. I like the warm weather and the nice people. New Zealand is very pretty and I love school, it is much better here. 

The classes are really relaxed and the teachers are nice. The subjects are so cool here. Laura is my exchange partner, she is really cool and like a sister for me.

My host family is very friendly and nice. My other host sisters are really nice, too. I cannot believe that I am in New Zealand, and it is so beautiful here. I want stay here forever.”
