Hola compañeros 👋🏽

Hi everyone !

My name is Franca and I’m from Germany ,from a city called Essen which is in the western part of Germany. I’ve just graduated this spring from high school and thought about doing something else apart from revision and my daily life for 3 months ,which I’m very exited for by now !

I’m 17 and grew up in Italy near Milan with my 2 older siblings, as well as I went to a boarding school near London for one year from which is still have very close friends. This means that I have a very close connection to England and Italy and enjoy to call those countries home as well! This summer I hiked a lot in Italy and enjoyed visiting Botswana and looking at its beautiful landscapes!

I love sports (especially tennis ,Yoga and Pilates) ,spending time with my friends and cooking or backing.

I’m very curious and excited what we’re going to experience all together on our trip. I’m very sure though that we are going to have a great time !
