  • Profile description
  • I have graduated from high school after taking A-levels in England, and am currently beginning a gap year before studying Biomedical Science back in Sheffield. As a person, I would describe myself as gentle, curious and a bit of a go-getter. I live life with a smile on my face, enjoy being active and sociable, and I try to be as helpful as possible. I'm fairly neat and tidy and appreciate order around me, but as one of four siblings order and tidiness is not something we come across very often. Growing up, my family moved between England and Norway (amongst other places), so I am used to being thrown in the deep end and having to adapt rapidly to new situations.
    i would really like to become fluent in other language and I believe the best way to do this is to completely submerse yourself in another culture.
