When I first arrived here,i was scary to move away from my family, friends, city; move to a completely different place alone, but at the same time i was really excited for the great experience i was going to do, live for four months in California and live the real American life style.
When i arrived here i did not expect the school was so hard, all over the world american is know for being easy school system, but here the school require a lot from all the students, another thing who impressed me is the school spirits.
Since I arrived in Oak Park I met many people and I've made special friendship, I'm opening up my mind and I'm seeing very different life style from Italy. I am very happy with my host family I could never ask better then them.
From the time i'mhere ihave learned to be more independent, i learned to do stuff by my own. I have learned to adapt to situations and I radically change my lifestyle.
I love California wheatheralways sun, blue sky, warm, it's summer all the year. People here are very nice, kind, they do not judge, they are open to everything and everyone without prejudice.
