Stellina was my partner and she was someone who was a stranger but now is one of my closest friends, a friend forever. Beginning with the things that I experienced for the first time. SNOWFALL. So beautiful! Skiing, even though I fell everytime and the food. Oh god the food! So delicious. Lastly, how loved I felt in a building that I now call my second home. My French family, within two weeks became my family. I loved them more than anyone and I still love them the most. They made me feel at home and never for a moment did I feel like I was in a different country away from my own family. My mother was so keen on learning about my culture and to make sure I don’t get homesick that she learnt a Hindi song for me. My stepdad had 76 dogs and he named four of the puppies after mowgli. They loved me like their own daughter and I couldn’t thank them more. My one year old sister was the highlight of all my days there and babysitting her was the most challenging thing I’ve ever done. I’d do anything to go back to them and I miss them more everyday !
