    1. Hi Khanh, I’m glad you liked this post! I had such an immersive experience with the Danes, and I’m very excited for you! (and also somewhat jealous that you’ll be there :p). Have the best time!

  1. Hey there!

    This was a really well written piece! I appreciate your perspective because I went to DIS with the same position! My host family was also very welcoming and open to learning about Singapore as much as they taught me about Danish culture. I hope we can connect in the future and reminisce about the joys of being Singaporean and DIS alumni. 🙂 Best of luck as this experience informs you as you explore the world beyond our little red dot. 🙂

    1. Hi Julie! Thank you for the kind words! I had such a fantastic time at DIS, and, like you, was very glad that I chose the homestay option. It really is the best way to fully immerse into the culture!

      When did you attend DIS? And I’d love to connect – drop me an email at ao273@cornell.edu? 🙂

      All the best wherever you are, fellow Singaporean!
