Meet Elif, a future diplomat from Turkey! An active member of her school’s theater club, Elif loves the thrill of transforming into a new character’s role and entertaining her audience. She’s been taking piano lessons for the past four years, and is proud to see a lot of improvement in her talent. Along with her friends, she enjoys going to the movies, bowling, and watching her favorite T.V. show, “Friends,” or movie, “Harry Potter.” They also often get together to play badminton, or tennis. Science is one of Elif’s strongest subjects. Last summer she attended space camp and became enlightened with even more information about astronauts and outer space. “I have a small family. Just me and my mom. I have always wanted to have siblings.” Elif and her mother have a very strong relationship, and together they enjoy cooking and trekking. Her favorite moments involve coming together with her extended family to celebrate holidays and other special events. She is eager to learn about her host family’s traditions for celebrating holidays as well. “I can’t wait to meet you and see how my exchange year will go with you!”
