Hey my name is Mikkel and I'm an exchange student here at MWHS and this is the reason why I'm proud to call myself a White Hawk. When I was in Denmark I played a lot of soccer, but I have never experienced such a bond between players on a soccer team until I got here. When I first met the soccer team in late August I felt right at home. I felt like “here’s finally a team that has the right connection”.
If I only could say one thing about my team is it that they might not be the most talented team I have played for, but they are definitely the best. I actually enjoyed the practice just as much as I enjoyed playing the games. I got excited on Mondays by the thought about playing soccer with the best team ever after school was over.
The sports are not the only thing that I like about MWHS. I’m not the biggest fan of school, but I surprisingly don’t have a problem dragging myself out of bed in the morning knowing that I have to attend school. The biggest reason I don’t have a problem with the school here is because I have good friends, good teachers, and really good classes.
If it wasn’t because I would miss my old friends and my family so much, I would definitely stay here and finish my education. I wished that I could stay here for more than just a year. Because one year is definitely not enough time to see all that I want to see and try all that I want to try. I’m proud to call myself a White Hawk, and I’m proud to say that this is my school!
