En hälsning från Virginia
Jag heter Virgnia, Jag kommer från Italien och Jag är 16 år gammal.
I have one brother and with my family we use to eat together and talk about our day or we watch a movie together. I like to cook with them and learn new dishes every time. When I was younger I loved to bake, now I’m becoming expert in healthy food as salads or smoothies. At home I help my parents cooking, but not only. I’m told to be an organized person. I love to plan things and get my schedule done, I can be really determined. I am the one who manage into my group of friends and organise activities. They are my second family and I love them. We love to go out and spend time together, do shopping or just talk in front of a coffee or something warm. I heard there’s this tradition in Sweden called “Fika” where people gather to have a coffee together. I’m looking forward to trying it, also because I’m a big fan of coffee and talks.
I really enjoy dancing, when I was little I attended a dance-school for 5 years and I loved it, but then I quit because in Middle school I had a lot to study. I have been attending a gym for two years two times a week. This year I’ve added swimming to my sport routine and I go once a week with my father, it is also a moment to spend time with him. When I have free-time I use it to watch Netflix or read a book or play the piano. I have played it for 7 years. Now it’s 3 years I don’t take lessons anymore and this makes me upset, but I have no time for it. I like pop music and if not Italian is better. I listen to German, French, English and Spanish songs and I’m always opened to new ones. I think music is a very good idea every time for every mood you’re going through.
At school my favorite subjects are English, German, Philosophy and Italian. What I feel for foreign languages is not only love, it is an obsession. As you can imagine I’m really excited about this Exchange because I hope I’m going to improve my English skills and learn Swedish. I have even started to learn it by myself!
Apart from this, I see this experience as an opportunity to increase my personal confidence and independence. I hope to get closer to a new culture and to new people and their traditions. I’d like to see life from another prospective. This is the perfect possibility to challenge myself as well. Everything is a good reason to come to Sweden: for example I’m really attracted by the landscape. I hope I’ll like your country, but I’m sure I will. I heard winter is very hard there, but I’m not scared because I enjoy the cold weather and the snow. It’s useless to say I have no expectations because that would not be true; I can just say I hope to have the best experience ever. I hope I’ll get closer to your culture. I’m really excited about this whole travel.
