Hi, I'm Savannah Groll, from tropical South Florida. I've always wanted to travel, and visit different countries, learn different languages, eat different foods, and immerse myself in different cultures. The differences and interactions between countries has fascinated me ever since I was little. I aim to work in the international relations and affairs between countries when I'm older, and look forward to helping companies and peoples exchange their ideas.
In my free time, I make plans with friends, I listen to music, read, draw, and when the weather is nice, I like to roller blade or just simply walk around outside. Where I live now is in a cluster of neighborhoods, with everything else being a couple miles away. Since a lot of homes are grouped, it’s easy to get to most friends’ homes. But, if we want to go anywhere else, we have to drive. There isn't much public transportation here, and so driving or walking is the only way to get around. I have many interests, and am continually expanding my horizons. Personally, I think my strong characteristics are that I am friendly and adventurous. I love trying new things and never turn down a new experience (including new foods), and I can easily adapt to any situation. I have a fascination with the history and iconic architecture of Germany; which is partly why I am so excited in going on a year-long exchange.
As an exchange student, I wish, and look forward to, learning the language, culture, and customs of Germany. I later plan to attend college, and hopefully partake in other study abroad programs, which will only add to my world view and experiences.
