The Global Ed Department at Weston High School is looking for a host family for our incoming Brazilian Exchange student. The exchange student typically arrives at the end of August and stays until the end of January. If you are interested in hosting all or a portion of the stay, please contact the Dire

ctor of the program, Nick Pezzote, at pezzoten@weston.org. Also, below is a small introduction written by the exchange student himself, along with his picture (right)



Hi. It's a pleasure to introduce myself. First of all, my name is Guilherme Sperb, I'm 17 years old and I was born and raised in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Currently, I'm in the last year of high school. My favorite subjects are English, Mathematics and Biology. In the future, I want to be a doctor. Besides, I love to do theater classes. In my free time, I like dancing, taking pictures, helping people, listening to music, staying with my family and visiting nice places. About my personality: I would say that I'm friendly, creative, self-confident, independent and very organized. By the way, I'm a really outgoing person, so I guess my adaptation will be easy and fast. This exchange is going to be a great step to make my dreams come true. I want to change my routine, learn new things, meet new people and live new experiences. I've never done something like that,  so I'm looking for new challenges and hoping to get the best moments of my life.  I'm really excited to meet my new family, my new friends and start this unique opportunity. Thanks for everything!
