Thanks from Alumni Language Exchange Scholar

A recent Alumni Language Exchange Scholar has expressed thanks for the opportunity to experience authentic French culture.

Excerpts from their letter of thanks to donors:

My exchange program consisted of me staying in the French Riviera in a small town named Mouans-Sartoux, from December 2018 to January 2019.

I had the best exchange family anyone could ever ask for, they were so loving and caring for me, always knew how to make me laugh and have a good time.

I ended up visiting Paris for three days with my exchange family, where I was absolutely lost for words when I saw the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, and Notre Dame.

I had an unforgettable, amazing time in France, and none of it would be possible without the Scholarship I was so kindly awarded.

Not only did I have an absolute blast seeing a part of the world I’ve never seen before, but also my skills and attitude towards the French language and culture have grown tremendously.

It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that allowed me to experience the authentic French culture. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

I do genuinely thank you all for awarding me the Alumni Language Exchange Scholarship, and I hope to be able to also pay it forward to a student in my position someday.

Thank you so much.
