Well, that's what Nora Mata did and she ended up in Alton. Nora is originally from Mexico City, Mexico. Her cousin went on a student exchange from Mexico City to Kansas, so Nora followed suit and wrote tothe Inter- national Fellowship lnc. to go on an exchange. She was chosen to come to Alton. Another reason for going on the exchange was to learn English. She has classes consisting of Student Senate, art, typing, P.E. and Spanish. Nora enjoys school, in fact she said, 'l like Alton High more than anything in the United States." She could think ofnothing that she didn't like about America or Alton High, but the fact that she only speaks Spanish is a bit of a hindrance. Nora arrived in Alton on Sept. 2 from Mexico. She is staying with the Cletus Keene family. Brenda Keene is a junior at AHS.,Nora is only I5 years old, a sopho- more by our standards. However, in Mexico she is in her third year of secon- dary school. When speaking of the schools in the United States, she explained, "Some are the same, some are different. The different ones are bigger in America, with many more activities." The only activities in her school are basketball, volleyball and soccer. Soccer is a big sport in Mexico. Nora Christina Dominguez Mata came to the United States to learn English and meet new and different people. When asked if she had accomplished this yet, she responded. "Si". Raewyn loves Ice cream by Debbie Ylnger Who's the new girl with the British accent? She's Raewyn McNeill from Christchurch, New Zealand. Raewyn, I8-years-old and a senior at AHS. came here through AFS and is staying with Mr. and Mrs. Gail Weinrich and their daughter Carol, ajunior at AHS. What does Raewyn like best about America? "My favorite is the ice-cream parlor. l've gained seven pounds already," said the petite Raewyn. However, she said she can do withdut the hot weather we had in early September. The entire population of New Zealand l3,000,000l is less than the population of St. Louis. But the population of her city, Christchurch, f320,000J is eight times larger than Alton. Raewyn is taking these subjects at AHS: Interior Design, calculus, Radio!TfV., American Government and psychology. She is participating is Student Senate and AFS. Raewyn explained the difference from her school in New Zealand to AHS. "Back home we have more discipline and had to wear uniforms." Aren't you glad you don't have to wear a uniform everyday? 169
