Petersburg High School senior, Maura Sullivan returned home in July after a year long exchange student experience in Poland.
“I lived in Warsaw, the capital and I loved it,” Sullivan said. “But coming from Petersburg to the capital where there are almost two million people was quite a culture shock.”
Sullivan went into this experience with only a few phrases of Polish to her credit and enjoyed every moment of her time in Poland.
“I didn’t really speak any Polish except for a couple of phrases and they were all very hospitable and treated me very nice,” she stated.
