When sixteen-year-old Daniela Morales boarded a plane on August 17 to come to America to live in Turton, SD, population 61, she was unsure of what to expect.Daniela is from Curituba, Brazil a city of 2.2 million people, so Turton is a bit of a change for the young girl.She is here through the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) Program.She is staying with the Monte and JoAnn Troske family in Turton.The Troskes have three children: Elizabeth (17), at home, Danielle (20), a student at NDSU and Kayla (22), a student at NSU.Daniela's family in Brazil consists of her father Hugo, a civil engineer, her mother Roxana, an economist that works with International Trade Relations and a big brother Hugo (22). She has been studying the English language for only three years; her receptive and speaking skills are nothing short of perfection.When Daniela was aware she was coming to America she started to listen to American music.She still finds herself connecting her conversations with others to music lyrics she has heard.Daniela attends Doland High School where she is currently a junior.At home in Brazil she is a sophomore.She is finding school in America to be quite different.Here she attends school from 8:20 to 3:20.At home she attends school from 7 a.m. to 12:15.Homework is also different as she has none in Brazil and she finds the homework here very time consuming.In America she also has options for classes she can take; at home she doesn't.At home she is required to take 12 courses at varying times throughout the week.Daniela is one of the lucky girls though; all of the classes she takes in America will go towards her Diploma in Brazil.Many visiting students have to make up their year in America when they return to school in their homelands.Her only requirement is to keep them at a C, or above, throughout the course of the year.She attends Positivo School, a private school in Curituba.Daniela has found herself enjoying her new school.She is finding the students very friendly and she enjoys the smaller class sizes.At Daniela's school there are 50 students or more to a classroom.She is also a cheerleader and student manager for the volleyball team at Doland School and is thinking about playing basketball this winter. "Everything here is so different, but yet the same," says Daniela.She is finding herself loving American food, especially chocolate."You can't compare the brownies," she said."I love the brownies here."In Brazil foods are more health conscious.She has found one American food she doesn't like and that's bacon; and she doesn't really care for South Dakota barbecue sandwiches. She is also finding packages of food to be much bigger in America, and in Brazil they have no finger foods."Even if it is a finger food, we use utensils," she said. One of the things Daniela has had a hard time getting used to is her American curfew.The Troskes have a curfew of 1 a.m.; she is used to staying out until three, four and five in the morning.
...
"I like country music," said Daniela.Another first for Daniela will be snow.It has only gotten down to 32 degrees once where Daniela lives.She cannot wait to play in the snow."I am so excited to see snow," she said.Host sister Elizabeth hopes there is enough snow for Daniela to experience snowmobiles for the first time.During her stay here, if Daniela starts to feel homesick, she can always visit her friends from Brazil staying in America and she won't have far to travel.Her friend Camilla is staying in Mellette with the Dennis Welch family and she also has another friend staying with a host family in Aberdeen.The Troskes are looking forward to their year with Daniela.The family recently went to Chicago to attend Monte's brother's wedding and are looking forward to a trip to the Black Hills sometime during Daniela's stay.Turton, SD may be a small village, but it is a town with a very big heart and Daniela has been welcomed with open arms.The Redfield Press welcomes Turton's newest resident and hopes she has a wonderful stay in America.When sixteen-year-old Daniela Morales boarded a plane on August 17 to come to America to live in Turton, SD, population 61, she was unsure of what to expect.Daniela is from Curituba, Brazil a city of 2.2 million people, so Turton is a bit of a change for the young girl.She is here through the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) Program.She is staying with the Monte and JoAnn Troske family in Turton.The Troskes have three children: Elizabeth (17), at home, Danielle (20), a student at NDSU and Kayla (22), a student at NSU.Daniela's family in Brazil consists of her father Hugo, a civil engineer, her mother Roxana, an economist that works with International Trade Relations and a big brother Hugo (22).
