    "One of my favorite moments from my ACM program was an afternoon that I spent with my host mom. I was teaching her how to make my favorite cookies while she taught me how to make one of our favorite Indian dishes. We blasted music—some of it my favorite music, some of it hers—and we danced together and had a blast. At one point, I played a Dutch rap song that one of my friends from the Netherlands had shared with me. My host mom absolutely loved it, and I enjoyed being a part of such an intimate cross-cultural experience!"
