ASSE International Student Exchange Program
ASSE International Student Exchange Program

Hi my name is Teresa, I am the ASSE Area Coordinator in Michigan. I have been hosting for 4 years now it has left an impact on my family, we have learn about other cultures and they learned about ours. Having an exchange student in the home is much like having an adopted teenage son or daughter from overseas. Each student that we have hosted has become very close to us and has become a part of our family. We truly enjoy having a teen in the house.

Mammadagha is from Azerbaijan, he is 17 years old.  His interests are Running, track, wrestling, acting, chess, reading and exercising.  One useful quote that I heard and live by is: “If it was easy, everybody would do it”.  These words keep me motivated to train harder and I consider myself a winner.  He describes himself as hardworking, communicative and trustworthy. One of his dreams is that he would like to learn to play the guitar while in the USA. Ci015EE
