Chantal

Namn: Chantal
Födelseår: 2005
Hemland: Tyskland​
Språk: Tyska, engelska​ och polska
Period: Augusti 2021 – Juni 2022​

Intressen:
Sport is very important to her and she has practiced karate for 8 years and she enjoy playing volleyball with her friends. A highlight for Chantal is her family's annual skiing trip into the Alps. Her twin sister and Chantal have been downhill skiing since they were 5 years old. Music also plays an important part for Chantal. During the lockdown she started to take a special interest into playing the piano.​

Varför Chantal vill åka till Sverige:
"Because my mother is Polish and my father German, I grew up bilingual. When I was little, we travelled a lot. This created my great interest in languages, geography and cultures. I can honestly say that I have always had a preference for the Nordic countries, Sweden in particular. For this very reason, I self-thought myself the Swedish language and decided to deepen my knowledge while spending a year in Sweden."​ ​

En hälsning från Chantal:
"I enjoy talking with my friends and family about different topics. My grandfather is the best to talk about astronomy and with my brothers I love to discuss current events whenever I get the opportunity. Whilst I am very open about my opinion, I am also very much open to be proved wrong and learn something new. I always try to make up my own mind about the world instead of forming prejudices. I am a very curious person and love to take advantages of every offer I get to gain new experiences and adventures, even if it means leaving my comfort zone."​

Varför Muriel vill åka till Sverige:
"I got the idea of doing an exchange year during our holidays in Sweden, February 2019 near Nattavaara. In our holiday accommodation, I met a boy from Germany who already were in Sweden for some months visiting a local school and living with his host family. From him I got some Information about his time in Sweden, which led to the next steps and todays decision.” ​ ​

En hälsning från Muriel:
"If I tell people that I want to go to Sweden for a high school year, their first question is: “Why do want to go to Sweden?” The answer is easy. Because I am very interested in your county, the culture, the language. I want to be more than a tourist who cannot speak Swedish. My dad told me about his semester abroad in Sweden 20 years ago. I also want to live there for a certain time, feeling like a real Swede."​

I want to return to Germany and tell my family that there is more to Swedish culture than Astrid Lindgren, Ikea and cinnamon buns. I want to return being able to say I have found a second home.

Apart from sports she has singing- and flute lessons and she taught herself how to play the piano. She love music and she literally almost always listen to music. Mia really like children and she is used to babysit her younger cousins. ​

Varför vill Mia åka till Sverige?
"You see, I’m not a complete newbie to Sweden, my grandpa (or Morfar as we call him) is from Sweden and we’ve been visiting the country several times during vacation. I used to be very good at Swedish myself, but some vocabulary sadly got lost on the way because we haven’t been visiting a lot recently due to covid-19 and other. My dream always was to study and live in Sweden one day, to enrol in university and have an everyday life there. In my opinion this exchange was the perfect opportunity so I took it, hoping it would bring my dream a bit closer".​

Hälsningar från Mia:
"I'm proud to say that I'm quite responsible and reliable. Something I hate is lying to people, it makes me feel really guilty or betrayed if I'm the person who is lied to. I'm usually very positive and natural and I love spending family time as well as family holidays. I'm more of a quiet type of person, I don't need much to be happy. I’m a person who likes to travel but never got a chance to really do so. I’m really excited to be able to go to school and meet new people and do common things I always do, but in Swedish, and I hope we’ll have a great time together!"
