My name is Léa, I am sociable even if I can be a little shy with strangers. I’m frequently hanging out with my friends. It’s a way to chill out after school for instance, during weekends or during holidays. But each weekend I have to work hard so to prepare exams. Indeed in my school we have exams every week.
Every Saturday, I play basketball matches in addition to the trainings that I do during the week. It’s very important for me because I need to do much sport activities to stay in shape. But sometimes I need to rest at home and I like being alone as everyone do I think, but it never lasts long. I like to watch tv and especially french or american detective series. I love listening to music and I also enjoy going to some concerts. I’m always singing, listening to music. I have danced in a little dance school for more than 10 years, I practiced modern Jazz and now I just dance in parties with my friends or just alone in my room.
My parents spend much time at work, my mum has got her own hairdresser salon and my father travels a lot in France. It’s been like that for years so I did many things on my own but I still do not cook.
Although I’ve been learning English for long I’m by no means bilingual, and that’s why I really want to go overseas and especially in the United States. I enjoy Spanish too. We welcomed foreign correspondents at home and I’ve done school exchanges in Mexico and in Spain. An Australian student came with us at home too. I’ve always been fascinated by foreign languages and student exchanges are learning experiences. It helps me improve for my future.
I have been doing accompanied driving with my parents for one year and I will take the exam before leaving France.
I am looking forward to joining you in Seattle to discover your way of life, to improve my english, to discover the american school program, to meet new students, new friends and may be to choose courses I cannot attend to in France. I rely on my new family to share unforgettable moments. I would appreciate to keep on doing sport and mostly basketball if possible. I hope we will take time together to visit Seattle and its nature around. It looks amazing. Thank you.
