“I think it is a very nice city and everyone knows everybody and knows the character of everyone,” Simon said. “It is a safe place”

After Simon was asked about her host parents, she was more than pleased.

“My host parents are the nicest people on earth,” Simon said. “I think I’ll have a great year here with them.”

Simon is impressed with her host parents and is hoping for a great year in America. She is excited for this school year and has also taken up a new sport.

“I’m doing cross country,” Simon said. “I’m totally bad at it but I’m getting better.”

“I love Baldwin and I love my host parents,” Moretti said.
