This week’s student letters welcomes Student Ambassador Exchange’s students from Thailand! We’re happy to introduce Pat, whose favorite food is omelettes and hobbies include drawing, running, and listening to music. He also loves to spend time with his family and hopes to have his own dog some day because he loves his aunt and uncle’s dog! Every week, we feature one or two student letters of kids applying to our program for the upcoming school year. It’s a great way to learn more about a student and find out if he or she is a good fit for your family! You can meet all of our students on our photolisting and submit a FREE application to learn more about each kiddo in the program.
Student Letters: Meet Pat
Dear Host Family,
First of all, I would like to introduce myself. My nickname is Pat. I am 15 years old, and I live in Thailand. I’m currently in grade 10 – I just started a new school. I can make new friends easily, so I have adapted well to this school. It’s bigger and more difficult because it’s one of the best schools in my town. My favorite subjects are math and PE. I love playing sports. My favorite sport is basketball because it’s fun and challenging. In School, I take part in the 4×100 meter relay – my friends and I received the bronze medal on Sport Day. I love drawing as a hobby. I’m also interested in music! I like listening to it and I used to play French horn in the school band. However, I didn’t have any time to practice so I had to quit. I can eat anything and everything and I love trying new things. My favorite food is omelettes.
My family has four people. My father is a programmer and my mother is an accountant. My older sister is getting her bachelor degree. My relationship with my family is very good. We all get along well with one another. We usually watch TV and have dinner together. Sometimes, when we have time, we cook together, play badminton, go bicycling, swim, and travel. I love going to the beach with them.
This is my daily routine: I normally wake up at 6 AM. I get to school by 7:30 via school van. Morning classes start at 8:30, and lunch is at 12:10. In the evening, I get home at 5. I will watch TV or play games. Then, I study some extra English by studying with native speakers. I think this will help me when I come to America. When I’m at home I always help my mother do housework. I can wash dishes, mop the floor, iron clothes, and keep my room tidy.
On weekends or school breaks, I go stay with my aunts and uncle at my grandmother’s house. I always help them do housework and spend time with them. They have 2 dogs named Madan and Mayom. They are very cute. I love playing with them, and I hope I’ll have my own dog one day.
In the future, I’d like to finish high school with good grades, and go to college for computer animation. I want to be a 3D animator because I like watching cartoons and I want to make my own cartoon. I’m also interested in cooking and would be happy to be a chef. I like food and I want to create new dishes. Now, I can only cook easy things like Thai omelettes, but I will try more food because I think it’s fun.
I really want to go to America because I want to improve my English, make new friends, have new experiences, and learn about American culture. I also want to teach people about Thai culture – such as Thai food and Thai dance. I’d like to try new activities in school.
I want to thank you for choosing me to be a part of your family. I will be a good boy. If there is anything I can do to help you I will do my best. I would love to teach the Thai language to you if you want!
