My name is Jasmin and it´s me that run this blog. I just wanted to share a little bit about me and why I have chosen to make a blog.
I live in Denmark near Aarhus in a city called Hinnerup with my mom, father, little sister and little brother. Recently I graduated school (folkeskolen) and the next year I’m going to be an exchange student in the Dominican Republic.
That’s the reason a made this blog. I wanted to have a place where I could share my experiences and look back at them. I also wanted to help and inform people about being an exchange student. I’m going to post blogposts throughout my year.
The date I’m traveling is the 17th of August early in the morning. I’ve chosen to travel with AFS. AFS is an organisation who send exchange students from all over the world to different countries. The main focus of AFS is to spread peace throughout the world. They believe that if we get a better understanding of different cultures and other people we won’t go into war against them. Therefor they made a program for young people to experience new cultures but also to make bonds with people from all over the world.

The reason for choosing the Dominican Republic is that I wanted to experience something completely different than what I am used to. The second reason is that I wanted to learn Spanish. I was scrolling through the countries on AFS’s website and fell upon the Dominican Republic. I did my research about the country and became really interested. So, I chose the Dominican Republic.
I am really excited to take on my adventure in August!
Have a lovely day!
