Sophie Simonsen and Josephine Thøger Vesth both moved to America in August 2016, Simonsen to Texas and Vesth to Ohio. They left Denmark after finishing secondary school and both stayed in America for ten months. “I went to the small, local school, so on my first day everyone knew who I was. I was quite exotic, coming from Denmark, and got some unusual questions like ‘do you listen to music in Denmark?’. It was quite funny really. Everyone was incredibly friendly and it didn’t take long for me to fit in. The worst part was actually coming back to Denmark; I miss it so much and can’t wait to go back as soon as I get the chance,” explains Simonsen.
