  • Description

    I am a 20 year old student of History and Spanish at the University of Bristol. I love learning languages and travelling, which enrich my understanding of foreign cultures, and learning the language of a foreign culture is the best way to truly understand their way of life. I am also interested in history, and love to travel to understand more about the history of other regions of the world from a non-Eurocentric perspective. What brings me happiness most in this world is playing my guitar and listening to music!
