Meet senior Louise Lehy

Louise Lehy focuses on getting the colors of her flowers right in one of her favorite classes: art.

By Emma Kostic
Louise Lehy is a foreign exchange student from France, who has come to here to experience the senior year of an American high school.

After this year, she plans on going back to France and enrolling into a University of Language Arts. She is making this year memorable by meeting a lot of new people, making friends and enjoying every moment that she gets. She says that the classes she has mostly enjoyed are art and media.

Louise states that being a foreign exchange student has impacted her life by making her more responsible and helped her figure out what is most important to her. For people who are thinking about doing an exchange program, she gives this advice: “Just do it, it’s an incredible experience. It’s not easy every day, but [it is up to you to] make the experience more rewarding.”

The high school here, she says, is very different from her high school in France. The things she will mostly remember are all the people she has met and “the typical American things like going to football games, homecoming, and cheerleading.”
