Foreign exchange program offers students chance to travel the globe
Before arriving in Franklin, foreign exchange students Kristina, a senior, and Toniee and Pam, both juniors, travelled through New York City to begin their journey studying abroad this semester.
The three girls, who each hail from a different European country, signed up for a semester abroad to travel the world and to build a foundation for their futures.
"It has always been a dream of mine to travel and to see as much of the world as possible," said Toniee a teenager from Germany. "I wanted to open as many doors as possible for jobs. I don't really know what I want to be or what I want to do when I get older, so this experience has better prepared me to figure that out. Having to practice my English and improve it will also make me a better candidate for more jobs."
