My name is Katya and this is my sister Kate. We became real sisters thank to Educational World. When I first came to the United States, met my host family and went to high school, I realized how hard the departure would be in one year. I was truly sad about leaving USA, but I remember all precious moments and keep the smiles and the memories in my heart. I would like to wish Educational World success in the great job there are doing and for everyone else to have the same chance as I did to see the world by discovering the new.
