My exchange partner isI really don’t discriminate! I’d be interested to talk to all ages/genders/etc. It would be interesting to me to speak to someone studying something similar in school and compare the experiences. I’d also love to find someone interested in pen-palling! 😊
My learning goalsRight now I’m JUST starting to learn French. I traveled to France for the first time this summer and I absolutely fell in love with everything about it. I never took a language class in school and greatly regret it. I want to make up for lost time!
My favorite topicsI love just getting to know new people! I’m especially interested in travel and learning about places and cultures. I’m currently majoring in Music Education and am a saxophonist. I plan on becoming a music teacher after graduation.
