Where are you from?
How did you end up coming to Fluvanna?
It wasn’t my choice. We have this program in my country and they have tours for us. We have to do exams for English and stuff. Then they choose certain people who qualify for that and then we just wait for someone from America, there’s a special site for exchange students and American host families choose them. I was just at home waiting and then I found out I would be here at Virginia, Fluvanna.
What are three things that surprised you about America?
Umm, a lot of people don’t walk. Like, all the time they’re driving. I’m not used to that. I’m used to walking in my country. And air conditioners are everywhere. They’re everywhere, even in the school. The third thing, I think everything is big. Like the stores and also when you go to a restaurant and you order something and there is a big plate. It’s a lot, I never eat so much.
What is your favorite thing about America?
I think everything. The whole country.
Do you have a least favorite thing?
Fast food, a lot of fast food.
What is your favorite American food?
Mac and cheese.
What do you do in your free time?
Homework and sometimes hanging out with friends.
What other languages do you speak?
I speak Russian, then our national language Kyrgyz, and I learned French here, and English.
