Ties Maas-foreign exchange student


New this year as a foreign exchange student is Ties Maas, a Junior at CVHS. Maas is from the Netherlands in Western Europe. He used to play rugby and currently wrestles and enjoys going to the gym. “I got to choose to come to America”, says Maas, but he did not get to choose exactly where. When asked what some culture shocks were, Maas says, “School is way easier here and I guess just the little town. I’m used to living in a big city.” Maas says Christmas in the Netherlands is not much different from Christmas in America except… we don’t really celebrate it with presents, we just get together with family and play games.” Maas stays with Onna Moreland and her family.
