This week’s student spotlight is on Bang, a Vietnamese student attending school in South Carolina. Bang is currently in his second year in the United States and is planning on returning for the 2017-2018 school year too.
Initially a High School Exchange USA student, Bang returned on the High School Study USA program this year because he “had always desired to learn about the American culture. I wanted to study in America whose education system is among the best in the world.”
At Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School, Bang says his favorite class is Comparative Government, "because it broadens my knowledge about the various political systems in the world.”
Bang has made lasting memories with his host family, including a trip to Disney World. Bang's advice for students looking to study in the United States is “to be open and be willing to learn and emerge into the culture that might be different from their own.”
