German exchange student's cheerleading photo in Indiana

German cheering for the cougars

Hi, I’m Emily and I’m from Germany, and I am spending my exchange year in Indiana. I’m here for five months, and six weeks have already passed.

I’m on the cheerleading team at my school. We are called the Cougars. In Germany, I’m on a dance team, so it was kind of the same as cheerleading. In my school, there are four other exchange students from Spain, Italy, and Japan and, we all arrived the same week!

Right now, my host family and I are traveling a lot to different lakes, I can’t wait for the rest of my exchange year!
