Hej. Jeg hedder Chastyn. Jeg er en udvekslingsstudent.
Jeg kommer fra USA. Nu vil jeg skifte til engelsk…
When I first got to Denmark, I had so many culture shocks. Most of them involving school. For example, calling your teachers by their first name and only having up to four classes a day. The biggest shock was the school parties and how the school serves alcohol at them. In the US that would be unheard of.
My favorite things to do during my exchange year were spending time with my host family, walking around in Copenhagen, playing volleyball, and making memories with my friends.
I was very lucky to be placed at Herlev Gymnasium because I have met very amazing people. I have made lifelong friendships and many amazing memories. I truly enjoyed being a student at HG. The teachers, staff, and students were all so kind and willing to help. One thing I’ve noticed is that the teachers seem to be more down to earth.
My time in Denmark was filled with the best experiences I’ve had. Moving to a different country for a year was a risk that I am so glad I took. The Danes are very kind and considerate people. They are fun people to be around and create a very welcoming community.
I head back to the US soon, and I will miss my friends, teachers, teammates, coaches, and everyone I’ve met during my exchange year so much! I can’t wait to return!
Tak for de fine ord @chastynmalone - det har været en fornøjelse at have dig på HG!
