When i first heard about the Japanese exchange trip from Mr Ali i was really excited and just too busy thinking about "ANIME ANIME ANIME" i was like i should do this to go see anime but my dad got me to sit down and calm down and just talk about why i should do this . As we progressed talking and talking i finally realized why i should do this. The emotions that went through my head as soon as i opened my letter were Happiness and excitement. I rushed straight to the basketball court to tell my friends and they were like really hyped for me to go. Once they saw me get in, they were influenced by my success. My families reaction was over surprised and they were all praying for me to get this but they told me before "even if i don't make it at least you've made it this far." Now I'm here sitting here with 5 other students that i will come to grow a strong relationship with them.
Over this journey i hope to go from not talking that much to Talking a lot to my buddy who i will get to know the most, what his daily life is like, what his interests and aspects are in life of Japan, and other Bonding activities.
I would like to thank my family and close friends that got me here because of their support and helping me just to do what i needed to do. I'm also really grateful for Novetel to sponsor this once in a life time trip for me which i will get to experience and explore new things in a different country.
