Was your top choice US?

Yes, from the first day on.

I didn’t play sports in Switzerland, but I play football here.

Why did you become an exchange student?

I wanted to get out of the everyday environment of Switzerland, see something new and get to know a new culture.

What do you miss the most?

I miss the elevation and bread.

They’re generous,  show me things around Charleston, and my host sister goes to SOA.
