How would you describe yourself?   I’m a smart, sarcastic, creative girl.

Why do you want to learn English? Because I love learning new languages and these days English is very important when you have to talk with people from another country, too

Is this your first time in England? Yes, I’m very excited to be here and, at the moment, I’m in love with this country.

What’s your favourite quote? It’s: I think I need glasses, ’cause I keep seeing people with two faces.

What’s your favourite city? I’m not sure, but I think it is Paris, I travelled there when I was a little girl and I loved it.

What are your hobbies? I love listening to music, reading and hanging out with my friends.

What is your biggest fear and why? My biggest fear is drowning.

What was the best news you ever received? Probably when my parents told me I was going to have a little sister.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given? Don’t trust anyone.

Where do you see yourself five years from now? Probably I’ll be at university and, on vacation, I’ll be travelling a lot.

If you could live in any other country in the world, where would you live? Why? I will live in the US, because it has been my dream since I was a little kid.

How many days could you live in solitary confinement? How would you do it? I don’t know, like a week, I guess. I would read as many books as possible and watch a lot of movies.

Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? Why? I would rather lose all my old memories because my family and friends could tell me the most important things about my life and it would be awful to be unable to remember new people that I meet.
