What do you miss about the UK?
Certainly not the weather!! :)
I do really miss my host family and some bits of my life in England: my workplace in the restaurant of a hotel, my lovely volleyball team, my independence, the nice chats with my host family at dinner, my comfortable house with the little garden, my lovely room and the most comfortable sitting room ever where I've read tonnes of books!
Now that you have finished school what do you plan on doing?
I was planning to go back to the UK immediately after my exchange, but I thought that finishing my studies was wiser! Thanks to my exchange year, I discovered my true passion, patisserie, so I took a pastry course and I'll leave for Australia in a month to start my working life there
How do you think the experience of the exchange programme changed you as a person?
It was both the best and the worst year of my life and it helped me to discover a lot about myself. I think I grew up to be a more strong and independent girl, I know what I want from my future and I'm not afraid of travelling to Australia and starting all over again, because now I know that I can do it!
Are you planning to return to the UK?
Probably! Not in the near future, because I will be quite far away from Europe, but I'd love to see my family, my colleagues and my friends again
