"First, I always loved to travel. I am nearly every holidays on vacations with my parents. And often we are in Norway and Sweden. I love the landscape of Scandanavia. There is no better view then the view over the fjell. Another reason is the culture and traditions. Oh and I really hope to learn Norwegian. But beside of all that reasons is the most important one the have an adventure. I love to try something new and collect memories. I mean you only live once and I don’t want to regret someday the fact I didn’t have done something adventurous. So you could say I would love to see as much as possible in my life. I always liked the idea of an year abroad. And for a long time I wanted to do it after school, but then I heard of an exchange year during school and was delighted. Because so you have a directly access to people and peers. You go to school there and the possibility to find new friends is definitely higher for me."

"I would like to share my life and my tradition with them as well as they share their life and tradition with me."

She started to learn Norwegian by watching Norwegian series on Netflix.

Hvorfor Ida vil til Norge:
"I would love to experience everyday life with my Host Family. I am looking forward to make new experiences with the culture, nature and my new social environment. It is important to me to expand my horizon including the language and my knowledge. On the other hand I really hope I can share some of my culture, maybe teach a little bit of German for example. If I’m being honest when I was younger, I imagined going to the USA or Australia as my older sisters did. I didn’t necessarily think of a country like Norway but that’s what makes it so exciting now. I just tried to let go of my principles to always choose the way you’re most familiar or comfortable with so I am really looking forward to these 10 months because I am sure it can only enrich my life and I can't wait to get to know you as my host family."

En liten hilsen fra Ida:
"Hi, I'm Ida, really open-minded and kind-hearted. Since I have three sisters I am used to sharing and I enjoy it. I enjoy taking care of people that are close to me. Putting a smile on their faces and being able to help makes me happy. Besides my social life, there are other things that bring me joy such as being creative. If I'm dancing, making music, or just sketching in my sketchbook I can relax and switch off. But nevertheless, I have goals. I am ambitious whether it's about school or a hobby of mine."

I want to study and live in Norway because I want to experience the Norwegian culture, school system and meet amazing people. I would also love to experience as much of Norway as possible, from the food, the places, the kind people and the language. My goals for my exchange year is to hopefully become more fluent in Norwegian (possibly even fully fluent by the end of it!), grow in independence, mature as a person and have the most fun imaginable with my new family and friends. I can't wait to learn new things and experience as much as possible!"

Zoés hobbies are dancing, she has been dancing for about 2 years and she really love doing it. She loves animals especially dogs. Music is also a hobby of hers and is a big part of her life. ​
"I've had singing lessons for a couple of months and I would be cool if I have that in Norway too if it's possible and I get the guitar, the ukulele, the kalimba and I start playing piano and I also write my own songs. I learned all the instruments I can play all on my own because I have trouble reading music. It's really fun to make music because it's an easy way for me to express who I am."​

Why does Zoé want to do an exchange?:

"I come to Norway through music, I started listening to Norwegian music and I get kind of obsessed with the language. I want to go to Norway because I've heard so many things about Norway that the school system should be pretty good and I want to see that in Switzerland you hear a lot of things about Norway, especially how beautiful it looks and how nice the people are and I really want to see this and I also want to learn about the culture, traditions and society in general."​

Greetings from Zoé:

"I'm curious. I'm also starting to learn Norwegian from bit on via an app, so jeg can skakker suffer norsk, but the best way, I think I still go there and to learn the language from the local people. Ha det. ‎Sincerely, Zoé"​
