Extremely fluent English scores; allergic to cats (long- and short-haired).  From a “really small village”, where she lives with her parents, sister and dog.  Likes dance and would also enjoy cheerleading, she thinks.  Mostly, she says, “I want to have this experience because I’d like to see the world from a different perspective.”
