#SAEstories: Meet Esther!

Esther the Chameleon

Well before our Skype interview, we knew that Esther was a bright young lady who would do well in the United States. Her writing was flawless, her grades spoke for themselves, and the introductory PowerPoint she sent us featured background music of her playing the piano. However, we were thrilled all the same to see her come to life on the video chat. She was all smiles as she led us through her variety of interests. Esther¬†pointed out her desk, and mentioned that she spends a lot of time sitting there and studying. However, she was quick to point out that she’s so much more than her good grades. She is an excellent pianist, and when you see her play you notice her attention to detail as well as her passion. Any musical families would easily form a strong bond with her. Additionally, Esther loves playing basketball. She played for her school team and would love to be able to make friends who she could play basketball with in the United States!

Esther absolutely loves spending time with her family and friends. She’s traveled all around China with her parents, and really enjoys any chance she gets to put down her textbooks and let loose a little bit. Like many of our students, she might need a little extra encouragement to stop studying and have some fun! However, she would do great with just about any host family. Although she’s an only child, she seemed very flexible and easygoing – we’re certain she could adjust to any family dynamic!
