Mentor - Phoenix
I am someone who they can always turn to when they need help understanding the American culture and language. I also learn a lot from the foreign exchange students about their lives back home. They give me very interesting reviews of their experiences with American Life.
My neighbor is a host for two foreign exchange students this year. While these boys are able to use me as a resource and I am in the same position as them, a senior high school student in America, I have gained two new friends who live right next-door to me.
I’ve never had that many neighborhood friends and these two exchange students have changed my life.
I believe every high school student should consider being a mentor with foreign exchange students. Mentors gain life-long friends, leadership skills, and their eyes opened to the various culture all throughout the world.
