My name’s Elizabeth and I’m from Brisbane, Australia. I’ve been fortunate enough to receive an ASSIST scholarship to attend Greenhill School in Texas! One of the reasons I applied for the scholarship was because I was born in the United States. My family moved to Australia when I was two, so I’m very excited to learn more about my birth country!
I have many hobbies including: piano, hockey, water polo, speech and drama, and visual arts. This year, I’m hoping to try out some new activities and gain a greater knowledge and understanding on American culture. I can’t wait to meet my host family and share my “Aussie” culture with them and other students in America. I’m also looking forward to returning to share my experience in the United States with my family, friends and community.
When I heard about this blog, I thought what better way to share and reflect on my unique experience while I’m away? Writing isn’t my forte, however I’ll try my best to write interesting blogs. I hope you enjoy reading about the scholars’ experiences!
