Magda also enjoys playing tennis, expressing herself through painting, spending time in nature with friends, and cooking for her parents. With an interest in art, biology, music, and learning foreign languages at school, Magda strives to be a respectful student and studies hard to earn excellent grades. After graduating high school, Magda has big plans to work abroad as an Au Pair to learn a new language, before studying architecture at university. Magda is a confident, friendly, and funny young lady who is always ready for a new challenge. Her imagination is running wild with ideas of what it will feel like to live in a foreign country while discovering the life of an American teenager. She can't wait to get to know her host family and the American culture through this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
