I'm from the United States, but I'm living in Germany from August until May and working as an au-pair. I am 18 years old. I studied German in high school, and am interested in furthering my language skills as well as immersing myself in a different culture. I love pets (I have a dog and 3 cats at home, all of whom I miss very much). I am very interested by history and enjoy visiting museums and historical sights. When I return to America, I plan on studying biology and one day becoming a microbiologist, or something along that line.
