During my year I was in Speech and Debate team, Student Council, Scouts, Art club, Drama club, and Science and Social Studies Academic Team and in sports I played Basketball and Track. During my exchange year I also did a lot of community service for which I got the Presidential Service Award signed by Mr.
President Obama and I also got an athletic award in Track.
My exchange year gave me a lot of chances to do many things that I had never imagined to do before. I played Basketball, Track, and was in scouts etc. I also had three host brothers for the first time because I never had a brother and now I have friends from like thirty different countries. For promoting my culture I gave a Presentation about Pakistan at my High school and I also used to tell them various things about Pakistan. I also used to wear my traditional clothes at my school and when I go out with friends, they really liked my traditional clothes. I was not a really responsible kid but the responsibilities I was given during my exchange year made me responsible and good time manager.
