My name is Luk, and I am an exchange student from Germany. I’m proud to be a White Hawk because we have so many different sport opportunities (surprisingly it doesn't matter that we are a smaller school). I have already tried two sports that are not common in Germany: Basketball and Cross Country Running.
Also I’m proud of the good team spirit we have in all sports that I have participated thus far. If we lose or win, all people are still cheering and helping you to produce the best results.
I am also proud because of all the friendly people who go to school here. Most of them start talking to me without knowing me. They have also tried to include me if I was alone and always smile at me in the hall way if we see each other. Students here just make the whole time better and help me feel good when I feel homesick.
I am not only talking about the students, they’re a bunch of teachers who really have helped me, too. There are some who just explain stuff over and over for me, and some who give me special time if I can’t finish something. I especially appreciate that, because I don't think that would be the same in Germany!
