Salut! My name is Ryan [hidden text]. I am 16 years old and a junior at [hidden text] High School. Also I am the youngest out of 6 children. I live in a very historical town called [hidden text], Ohio where I spend most of my time either in school or doing some type of musical activity. At school I am currently enrolled in College Prep or also known as advanced classes and my favorite subject is science.

To summarize myself up in a couple words would be, I’m very adventurous, a people person, very outgoing and not afraid to push myself out of my comfort zone. I love meeting new people and stepping out of my comfort zone in any way that I can.

Growing up I lived in a house hold of all guys including my father, [hidden text] and my older brother, [hidden text]. Due to my dad being ex-military he has always told me stories about him traveling the world and I have always had an interest in doing so myself.

Becoming an exchange student was a dream come true to me because I’ve always wanted to live in another country and explore the many other different cultures. I am even more thankful to be going to my first choice, the beautiful country of France. I can’t wait to see what is in store for me within the next 12 months of my life abroad in Nancy, France. À bientôt or see you soon! –Ryan [hidden text]
