To the Editor:
This has been an amazing year and one of the best in my entire life. My name is Dorde Komlen and I come from Serbia, a small country in Europe. I have experienced a lot of new things and thoroughly enjoyed each of them including Cross Country, Basketball, Baseball and many others. This one year in America has changed me in a very good way. It has shown me a completely new way of life and for that I wanted to thank everyone who was there for me the entire year. My new friends, my Community Representative with Ayusa, Shirley Nickel, and especially my host family that helped me through everything and accepted me as a part of their family, Mark, Sara, Madison and Logan More. I also want to thank the staff and teachers at Estherville Lincoln High School who supported me the whole way. Estherville, IA is an amazing community. I am so thankful I got to spend my exchange year in your community. Please continue to open your hearts to exchange students because your community has a lot to offer them. Life in America is very good. Thank you everyone for this special time in my life.
