You Can Make Isabell's Dream Real!

International Students Seeking Host Families

All About Isabell

Flexibility of mind and body is the trait of Isabelle that she is most proud of. At her young age of 15, this young lady from a small town in Germany is ready to bend into the experience of being an exchange student. She spends her days attending tenth grade in high school where her older brother is in twelfth. Her favorite subject is Math but does not like Art very much. During her free time, she enjoys spending time with her parents, grandparents, older brother and dog. Her parents help keep her on track and solve problems. She is a great listener and describes herself as a little shy. However, she is able to twist any situation into a positive experience with the help of her friends and family. Isabelle would love to be considered a member of a family and try something new. She demonstrates her physical flexibility by dancing ballet three times a week! She likes other types of dance too, like Zumba. Part of her mental flexibility is her willingness to attempt other sports and activities as well in America. She says, “It’s not guaranteed that I can practice my hobbies in the US. Actually, I’m not sad about that because I want to try something new.” Isabelle wants exchange thoughts and culture with an American family like yours. She hopes to dance her way into your hearts.
