Hello! Embla 7.2

on November 11, 2015


My name is Embla and I´m in class 7:2 in Linné. I´m a thirteen year old girl from Hässleholm that´s really excited to maybe be a part of this wonderful trip. I like to play video games, computer games and board games. I like to sing and listen to music. I like to draw but I´m not very good at it. After school I watch youtube and do my homework and sometimes hang out with my friends. I like to watch TV, and it really doesn´t matter what it is as long as its English. I am allergic to all animals with fur and Im a Vegan (so I dont eat any thing that comes from animals) but I´m willing to eat milk and eggs if I get to go on this trip. I have a phobia against snakes so I can´t be around them. We have room for one more person in our apartment Including a foldout bed. Traveling is something I enjoy and I am used to traveling by train. I´ve traveled by plane once and I dont have have a problem with it.

I am open to change so it wont be a problem with living and following somebody else rules. I dont have a problem of meeting new people or making speches so that wouldn´t be a problem if we have to tell other people about our trip. I dont have any problems with speaking English and I will (if I get to go on the trip) only speak English the whole time. I almost only speak English with my dad and my sister because my dad is from India. I feel quaified to go.  I´ve seen the video about the last trip and it looks so cool.

I want to go on this trip because it would be a great opportunity to test and improve my english skills. I love lerning about new countries and cultures and Finland seems interesting and beautiful. I feel ready to go to another country, both with my ability to speak english and live with someone I dont know. It would also be really fun to have a visitor from Finland so I can show them around and tell them about Sweden and Hässleholm. It would be awesome to have a friend in another country, like a pen pal. I hope to learn to speak som Finnish on this trip as well as learning about the country and how school works there.

I hope you will give me a chans to go on this trip. 🙂
