En hälsning från Baran
Dear host family,
Thank you for opening your beautiful home to me. My name is Baran and I am 17 years old. I live in Turkey with my Welsh dad and Turkish mom. I have no siblings but I have never felt alone because of my mother´s extended family.
I´m a very organized person, but also flexible meaning I´m OK if the plans change. I´m very cheerful and fun to be around and I´m good at adapting to new surroundings. I´ve always loved sports and nature, my favourite sport is sailing and I have been doing it since I was 11 but had to quit recently.
My hobbies are basketball (which I´ve had to stop playing competitively because of an leg injury), reading books, listening to music and watching films with my family. I also enjoy going nature trekking with my dad and would like to do that in Sweden too. We also have fun conversations about history and I help him with his sword exercises and archery. With my friends I like to go camping, and go out and have fun together as teenagers do.
My school is lovely because of my friends and teachers. I´m studying language which means English in Turkey in my school but my favorite class is physical education because I really like working my body. I have also attended MUN conferences several times with my school and individually. I should explain MUN in case you don´t know it. It´s basically Model United Nations done by teens. It is a really good event to make new friends and learn about world´s problems and solve them. Unfortunately, education system in my country has many problems. I have been lucky enough to attend private schools with a more active approach to education. I´m very interested to experience the Swedish education system which is world famous for its success rates.
I have always wanted to be a vet although my math is not really good enough so I don´t have a specific idea of what I want to be in the future. Although I don´t have a specific job in mind, I would like to do something ecological, which is one of the reasons I have chosen Sweden. My country could learn a lot from the way that Sweden manages its ecology and the way Swedish people interact with nature. As I mentioned before, I´m really interested in specially outdoor sports which I know Sweden is also famous for.
Yours sincerely, Baran
