Ethan is an adventurous, caring and curious 17 year old boy from Lanzhou, China. Just this last year Ethan’s family was able to host their own exchange student from a program called AFS. During this year long experience Ethan was able to learn more about American culture and was also able to teach the other boy about Chinese culture. During their year together their relationship became very close and at the end Ethan considered the exchange student like a brother.
In his free time Ethan likes to play basketball and badminton. Most of all Ethan enjoys traveling so far he has been to Malaysia, Thailand, America, Korea and Japan. In the future he would like to backpack more around the world, in his own words Ethan says “I enjoy the feeling of being on the road. The destination is not the purpose of a trip; the purpose is to embrace different cultures, learn thing and find out more about yourself.
Ethan is looking forward to meeting his new family, he hopes that his year abroad can be another amazing traveling experience where he will be able to learn more about American culture and also improve his English language skills.
