Lara Rieger
Hey there! My name is Lara Rieger and I am a foreign exchange student from Germany. My host parents are Holly and Ronald Westemeier and I have a little host sister named Willa. I really love everything I have experienced so far and I am looking forward to spending the rest of the school year here.

In Germany, I have been playing field hockey for about six years. Here, I ran Cross Country and I am also playing basketball. In spring I will probably do track. In my free time I like hanging out with friends, binge watching Netflix and listening to music.
