Muhammad Dwistaraifa Rasendriya is a foreign exchange student from Indonesia. He is 16 years old. It is his first time in the United States. In his spare time, Muhammad reads books and writes his own blog. Also, he studies history.
Muhammad is surprised at how different schools can be. He says that everything is different, from the way the subjects are taught, to the way classes are set up. Back in Indonesia, everything was entirely manual and books were primarily used. Here everything is computerized and books are available online. When asked about Wakefield, Muhammad mentioned that he is happy about the welcoming attitude he feels from fellow students. All teachers are kind, supportive, and have their own niche,. Picking a favorite teacher feels wrong. Als,o Muhammad reveals that his first, and nicest, experience in Wakefield was when he was having a conversation about the latest events in school with a girl from chemistry class. Muhammad wanted to leave Wakefield students and teachers with some advice from John Green, “Don’t forget to be awesome!”
