Hello! I´m Claudia, I live in Spain, I am a very extrovert and friendly girl, I have a big brother who is 17 years old, that also went to USA for a school year, I live with my parents and my brother. I don´t have any pets but I love dogs, my aunt has one dog name Catalina and some weekends I take care of her.
My high school is near my house, it only takes me 10 minutes to get there by foot, I normally have lunch at my grandmother’s house that is also very close to the high school. I love spending time with my family and friends, I normally hang out with my family every weekend and if we can we try to do things together in the house, like watching films or cooking together. I have dance lessons every Monday and Friday, I love music so this activity is one of my favorites, I have been going to a scouts’ group in my neighborhood since I was 7 years old and I love them, I´ve made a lot of friends there, during the year I have many camps, in the summer we always have a 15-day camp and its very fun, I have also went to summer camps in Portugal to practice my Portuguese, I love traveling and I have travel to many countries around Europe and I also went a few times to Mozambique which is my father’s homeland, and where I have the most part of my family.
I have many hobbies, such as reading books especially fantasy ones, I also love listening to music and cooking (disserts), I also like watching movies and series right now I´m watching Gossip girl. In my school I had English as a second language but know in high school I have French which I don’t like that much because is very difficult.
Before my brother went this school year I had heard from this program and I was very interested so when my brother went there, he told me about all the friend he made, all the opportunities he had and the amazing American family he had and all the things he learned and shared with the family, after this I was completely sure that I wanted to live that experience too, I’m very excited to do this school year, because of the experience but also because my dream destination was USA since I was little. I really like to learn about knew cultures, adapting and learning new ways of living and understanding life.
To finish I would really like to thank the American family for this amazing opportunity and for letting me in to their life and their family and shearing this important experience for me.
I can´t wait to meet you!
