One of my friend ask me these question for his essay ,1. What's your reason to be an exchange student?2. What is/are the benefits you get for being an exchange student?3. What will you do after you finished your exchange year?
Well,Because going abroad is one of my biggest dream , and I believe that exchange year can give you another experience that not all students in Indonesia can ever experienced it.
Just a couple days ago , my mom told me that she has a friend that she knew in the university, my mom's friend was going abroad via AFS , and she really wish that she joined the selection or maybe her future children. Her first children was her only hope , but it was imposible because his son went to a semi-military boarding school. Someday about 3 years ago when my mom's only daughter ask her "May I go for an exchange student selection?" , My Mom smiled and say "Yes, of course..."
