My exchange is quickly coming to an end. This is my last week at school and in South Africa. I am incredibly sad that I have to leave, but I’m also incredibly glad that I have had this experience. The six weeks that I have been here have flown by in an instant. Having to say goodbye to all my friends and my exchange family will be one of the hardest things I have ever done.
I have learned a lot during my time here, about myself and others. I’ve learned how to live away from home in a strange new environment, skills that will come in handy when I go off to college. Everyone here is so amazing; I cannot say that enough. From the second I got here till my last day of school I have felt like I’m at home. It will be sad to say goodbye, but I know that I’ll eventually see them again. Thanks for everything Stanford Lake College. I’ll miss you.
