ISE Highlight of the Week: Angelica (Angy) Paris Becher


Wilmington's International Student Exchange (IES) program currently has over 9 students from countries such as Italy and Spain hosted by local families. Local ISE students recently led service projects at PAWS Humane Society and the Clinton County Homeless Shelter. One of the students, Angelica Paris Becher, answered questions about her experience with the program thus far.

Q: What country are you from?

A: Italy

Q: What is your community like in your native country, and how does it compare to Ohio?

A: In my country, I live in a really small village so the community is small and it is pretty close to the one where I am living now in Wilmington 

Q: What is something unexpected that occurred when moving here? Or what is the biggest culture shock?

A: Probably the food because I am used to eat really healthy and rarely go out eating, instead here we usually go out eating and the food is fatter.

Q: What is one fun fact about you?

A: I love the buns of Texas Roadhouse:)
