Our Not So New Foreign Exchange Student!

March 9, 2020

For those in the community who didn’t know, we have a foreign exchange student! Her name is Nisa, she is a sophomore, and she is from Turkey! We asked her some questions to get to know her a little better:

What is your favorite food?
Mexican food, I guess. But not the actually spicy ones, the fast food ones like Taco Bell.

What are your favorite things from Turkey?
Turkish food and going to the beach.

What surprised you about the United States?
The fact that most people are calling mandarin oranges just orange or little orange. Because it's mandarin orange you can't just call it orange.

What do you miss about Turkey?
My school, family, and climate and sea.

What questions do you get asked the most?
Soo... Where are you from? Turkey? Huh!

Who is your favorite teacher?
Mrs. Barger, Mrs. VanHoose, Mr. Beck, Mrs. Borkosky, Mrs. Beall, Mrs. Inniger, Mr. McGrain, Mrs. Cortez, and Mr. Oates. So all of them.

Who would you say is your best friend at Arlington?
Sophie Dillon is forcing me to say Sophie Dillon, but she is actually my new awesome friend.
