About Me

Hello my name is Lizzy. I am 18 years old. I am fluent in German and English. I am studying Japanese in school and have been for almost three years. I am studying Korean and just started taking classes in Fall of 2010. I love Asian cultures because they are so different. The history, the language, and the cuisine is something I find fascinating. Korean and Japanese music has become an obsession at this point. I have several penpals in Japan and love exchanging letters and small items with them. :) I love my own culture. I am half German from my mother's side and half Romanian from my father’s side. I've learned to respect and engage myself in learning about them. Why? My cultures make me who I am today. I am unique.

I love to dance. I have been dancing for just over eight years now. I have been formally trained in all styles but, street styles are my favorite. I've taken diction classes and voice lessons since I was very little. Music has always been a part of me as I am now an excellent pianist and guitarist. Music and dance have been more than just a hobby for me. It has transformed into a lifestyle. It has become a necessity; something I need to do so I can get through the stresses of my own life. Dance and Music and kept me sane through the toughest of times. I may be young but I feel as though I have been though a lot. I know that my passion for Dance and Music will carry me through future struggles as well.

Dancing, singing, reading, crocheting, couponing, and writting letters is how I spend my free time.

Allergies

Comment: You marked "sent" on July 1, but it's September 3 and I have yet to receive anything. Your "last online date" is also July 1. If you come back to swap-bot and want to re-send, I will change rating when and if I ever receive anything.
