"Aloha! Coming to Hawai`i and joining the NICE program has been a unique, wonderful, fantastic experience that will allow me to return to Italy far more relaxed, laid back and happy. I did have fun! There are feelings that are difficult to explain with words. Above all, the Aloha & Kokua Spirit which you breathe once you land on O`ahu island and which makes you feel welcome since the first moment. During classes we’ve learned so many new words for describing terrific, incredible and amazing experiences you can live here in Hawai`i, but I’ll never find the right words for the following: looking at a red sunset on the beach or at a rainbow up in the sky; trying to learn how to surf and catching my first wave; snorkeling at Hanauma bay, swimming amongst the friendly and colorful fishes; watching a whale jump; greeting tired turtles which are resting on North Shore beaches; observing the rare Sumatran tiger cubs at the zoo; listening to the sweet ukulele sound; and I could go on forever with my endless list of outstanding, delightful and enjoyable activities I had the pleasure to experience here in this most beautiful Polynesian island. I’m glad I joined the NICE program, which helped me to improve my English, make new friends and get a touch of the Hawaiian culture. I think I’ll remember the awesome hula dancing anytime I’ll listen to Hawaiian music again. I definitely have to end with a word, the same word for all staff, teachers, interchangers, friends and everyone who took part in the NICE program: Mahalo nui loa!"
