My name is Sophie, I´m 18 years old and I am from Germany.
In June of this year I just graduated and got my a-levels and so my plan for this and for the next year is to travel and to get to know the cultures of other countries. As I am already in the English advanced course in school and I am really interessted in the English language, I would love to improve my English skills as well as to learn about the daily use of the language. In school one often only learns about the formal things about a language which I think is really disappointing!
Since I´m an absolutely fan of the nature, I am very impressed by Iceland, Ireland and by the Scandinavian countries with its overwhelming nature and wish to travel there for years.
I would describe myself as a person who is an avid smiler and who is passionate about animals, especially about horses and dogs, as well as about children :) Additionally I´m a self-motivated, independent, helpful and fit person and I enjoy being outside in all weather! I love to just go for a walk or just laying in the sun and reflecting the day or to philosophize.
Besides, I am a person who really enjoys the presence of other people and likes to have people around. Further, it is important to me to have something in life that you can focus on and not do nothing the whole day!
Another aspect is the music, which is really important for my everyday life. Unfortunately I stopped playing the saxophone but I still love to listen to music of every kind because it really relaxes me and makes my day perfectly.
My friends and my family describe me as a person who is ambitious, helpful and always smiling :)
In my free time I either like to go for a walk in the nature or I like to go to the gym. I can also relax in the riding stable and escape the stresses of everyday life due to the loving horse souls which are always there for you. Additionally, I enjoy being with my family and with my friends. I have a strong bond to my sister, which you can also see in one of my pictures. She is like a best friend to me and we spend a lot of time together. But also my mom, my dad and my grandparents are very important parts in my life.
Concerning to my experiences, I am occassionally babysitting and helping out in the riding stable. During the holidays, I take care of children´s and youth´s camps on a riding stable in Germany, so I'm used to hard work. I take care of the children, entertain them, give them riding lessons or go for a ride in the forest with them (there is a picture where you can see the kids with me after one of our wild rides through the field :)) Even if the job is very hard sometimes, I am doing it with all of my heart and can hardly imagine a life without this job.
I‘m looking forward to hear from you guys und to experience all kind of new things :))
