Hello! I'm Liam. I live in Vero Beach, a small town on the east coast of Florida. I am very blessed to live on a long, narrow island that separates the ocean from a lagoon on the opposite side. Due to where I live, i spend alot of time around the water either diving, fishing, wakeboarding, or kayaking. My family gives me alot of freedom to enjoy what the island has to offer. For that, I am very grateful. As for school, I am in the 10th grade. I play soccer on the school team and my favorite subjects are history and social studies. Being from the young nation that America is, I have always been fascinated at the immense history that came before this nation was discovered and the cultures that have developed elsewhere. This was one of the main reasons why I jumped at the oppurtunity to spend a year abroad. Over my exchange year in Switzerland, It has become a goal of mine to understand and speak Swiss and High German. I also would like to gain a new perspective of the world as a whole, and take that perspective with me for the rest of my life. I'm so glad to have the oppurtunity to spend a year in Switzerland and learn from the completely foreign environment that will be my home during my exchange year.
