Letter: From haunted houses to hockey, Bös enjoying experiences in Worthington

I would like to thank my first host family, the Hennings. Unfortunately, November is my last month with them and I will miss living with them very much because they made me feel at home.

Hello Friends!

I am Anica Bös, the Crailsheim student representative. Now, three months have passed since my arrival and so much has happened.

A new quarter has started at Worthington High School and I have a few new classes, such as Trojans Textiles. I enjoy the subject very much, because I have never had the chance to do something like this before. I also have a new U.S. History class for the next three months.

I traveled to Sioux Falls for the first time this month. I still can't believe how cheap you can buy stuff there! It was also the first time I went to a Target store. I love this shop. You can find everything you need there. I don’t know that from Germany at all.

I also had the opportunity to go to two haunted houses for Halloween. That was one of the funniest things, as I had never done this before. I don’t want to lie, but I was also a bit scared.

The scariest thing was where one of the actors looked me straight in the face and said in a creepy voice, “Look at me.” That was very scary, but somehow also very funny!

I started the sport of ice hockey in the middle of October, although I’ve never done it before. This new experience is a lot of fun for me. However, I have to get used to the training times first, because we have practice every day until 6 p.m. and we have to lift weights twice a week. What I have to get used to the most is morning practice. Every Friday at 6 o’clock in the morning. It was actually the first time I played in a game, albeit only very briefly.

I would like to thank my first host family, the Hennings. Unfortunately, November is my last month with them and I will miss living with them very much because they made me feel at home.

But I also look forward to having a different experience with my new host family and can hardly wait.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me and the Worthington-Crailsheim International exchange program!

Sincerely,

Anica Bös
2022-23 Crailsheim-Worthington student
