    Hello! I'm Naja, and I'm from Denmark. I'll be in grade 11 and am a B+ student. For 7 years I've studied English and I scored 9 of 10 on my English Oral Interview. I like languages and have also studied German for 4 years. I'm Protestant and am willing to attend church weekly. I enjoy bicycling, going to movies, photography, playing badminton, reading, soccer, and visiting museums. I don't specifically know what I want to be in the future, but I've always thought being a vet or a lawyer would be really cool. Right now, I'm just excited about the coming year. I've been working in a supermarket to earn money to use during my exchange year. I look forward to the coming year. I feel it will be helpful in my future and is a great way to get to know another culture and make lifelong friends.
