My name is Natsuko Hayama. I am an exchange student from Japan. I am 16 years old and in the 10th grade. I'm staying with Genny Pearson's family.
I live in Tokyo in Japan, so I got a little confused when I came here. There's a big difference between Iowa and Japan.
South Hamilton is very different from my home school. My home school is a girls' school and there are 1200 students between 7th grade and 12th grade (and we wear school uniforms). We have different classes every day and stay in one room all day.
I now have Social Studies, America II, choir and Social Psychology here. I am on the JV basketball team.
Anyway, I am really enjoying going to South Hamilton. I like South Hamilton and Iowa very much.
