Sophie leaves "half her heart" in France!
Last Autumn Sophie set out to complete a semester of Secondary School in France, however little did she know she would spend almost a year in France and have a new family upon her return in June!
Sophie extended her programme to last the full academic year, once she arrived in France and felt instantly welcome. She was even featured in French newspaper, documenting her experience of an Irish student in France! According to host-mum Carole
“Sophie is part of the family, we bring her to all family reunions. My two sons, 9 and 13 years old, became her adoptive brothers. We are so busy with our professional and volunteer commitments that we don’t really have the opportunity to travel the world so this is the world that’s coming to us”
Sophie's new family were invited to visit Ireland and by the looks of it Sophie and her mom, Eszter, gave them a true Irish welcome!
Welcome home Sophie and Bienvenue to the Urban family!
