Hi, everyone! My name is Kateryna Taranenko and I got lucky enough to spend this academic year in the US, as a part of FLEX program. I got an opportunity to spend this year in Houston, Texas. It is the fourth most populous city in the US, which is a very unusual, but exciting experience for me. I attend Westside High School as a junior(11th grade) and this school is a completely new thing for me. It is huge ( over 3000 people) and the whole school atmosphere differs a lot from our Ukrainian one. Given an opportunity to choose my subjects, I took everything, that interests me the most and I am looking forward to studying them this whole year. Hopefully I will get the best out of this exchange year, as it is a wonderful chance to improve myself in many different fields. I wish you the best year in FCG and I hope it will be successful and productive for our school!
