The United States hosts the maximum number of exchange programs in the world. I was selected for the SUSI Exchange Program and I have had one the best 6 weeks of my life in the United States.

We went to the University of Amherst, Massachusetts, and spent 4 weeks there. The two-week study tour was in New York, Virginia, and Washington D.C. Here are some pictures of my Visit to Washington D.C. in 2017.
