  • Profile description
  • Hi! I'm Hannah, and I am getting ready to travel to the United States.

    I grew up on an island off the coast of France, in a bilingual family (French mother, American father). Like my parents and three siblings, I've always loved to travel and discover new things.

    Currently, as I take a year or two off from school, I am planning to go to the U.S. to perfect my English and especially to get to know American culture first-hand.

    I tend to start out shy whenever I find myself in a new situation... but once I've had time to get my bearings, I really enjoy spending time with new people and discovering new places and landscapes. In the same way, partying with a lot of people and loud music isn't my thing; I prefer quieter moments, where I can get to know people by sharing one-on-one.

    I have recently finished high school, where I was enrolled in a special "Option Théâtre" curriculum. My other favourite subjects of study in school were math, political science and history... and on my own, I have especially enjoyed learning about astronomy and cosmology.

    My family is very musical and artistic, which has given me a taste for the arts (especially painting, cinema, street art, theater and music). Growing up, I learned to play the violin and the piano. I also learned how to sail and windsurf, and I rode horses for 7 years – which is something I would like to get back to someday!
