unterwegs auf Reisen
Hello!! My name is Sara. I'm originally from Dana Point, California, but my family lives in Nashville, Tennessee. I studied abroad in Madrid with a host family last year for 10 weeks and those were the best 10 weeks of my life. I loved my family so much and everything about their culture. I am pretty proficient in conversational Spanish but still have lots of room to grow! I am a nursing student at Saint Louis University with a minor in Spanish. This is the first year I've gotten to work in the hospitals, and it has been a life changing experience. I love the outdoors!! Going on long walks, runs (usually short ones), riding my bike, or just sitting peacefully. The past two summers I have nannied for two different families. I love spending time with children and find myself becoming just as playful as they are when I'm around them. I would call myself energetic and motivated. I would love nothing more than the opportunity to spend time with a new family / group of people to open my eyes a bit more to the world around me. Hope to see you soon!!!
Hi!! I am Mattie from Nashville, TN. I know Sara because we use to dance together. I currently go to the University of Tennessee and am majoring in Public Relations. I was supposed to study abroad in Spain this past summer and Australia in 2021; however, due to COVID, these experiences did not happen. I live with a positive outlook on life and am always up for an adventure. I enjoy making memories with friends, dancing, traveling and recently learning to sew. I would also describe myself as energetic and motivated! I am excited to open myself up to the world around me, experience new cultures and learn new languages. I have been studying Spanish for the past year and know the basics of communicating as well as writing.
Because I am a nursing major, I have extensive knowledge of the medical field. I also love to cook and try out new recipes whenever I get the chance. I was a nanny for two years and love spending time with kids. I'm pretty tech savvy with a computer and generally pick up on new programming pretty quickly. I consider myself a very social person. I love meeting new people and listening to them talk about what is important to them / hear their life story. I also love animals. I grew up with both cats and dogs and even babysat on a farm throughout my high school years! I am very comfortable with trying new things and always willing to learn new skills if you need help with anything.

I grew up around my extended family from Mexico, however, I never was able to pick up on much of the language from them since we only got to see them once or twice a year. I've always craved the ability to fluently communicate in Spanish so that I can connect with my family and other spanish speakers. I took 5 years of Spanish throughout grade school and am now minoring in Spanish. My biggest jump in proficiency definitely occurred when I went abroad to Spain and lived with a family who spoke nothing but Spanish. I was very conversationally proficient when I lived in Spain. I am always looking for the chance to learn and improve my Spanish wherever I go. Living with a family who speaks Spanish would be ideal so that I could hone in on this skill.

I'm very passionate about music and always looking for new songs / genres to listen to. I have a small beaded bracelet collection that is slowly growing. My dad and I like to play chess every night after dinner. We also love card games like poker, blackjack, and BS. I love to read books, they are my little escape from the world.
