Hi, my name is Piroska Maurer and I’m currently living my Californian dream.
I am an exchange student from Switzerland. I always wanted to participate in an exchange program to the U.S. to improve my English and to get to learn about another culture. Through an exchange experience, I also hope to get a new view of myself and to improve myself. About a year ago, I started to plan my exchange. I looked at a couple of schools in California, and I finally decided to attend Pacific Ridge School in Carlsbad. Pacific Ridge School is very different from my school in Switzerland, but in my opinion, it is a very good school. The students are very friendly, I feel like I found a second home here. I love the climate of San Diego, and the people I have met here are also very friendly and lay back.
