Hola amigos!

Hey everyone!
My name is Emmy, I´m 18 years old and just graduated from high school. I live outside of Hamburg in the north of Germany.
In my spare time I enjoy playing field hockey, tennis, running, reading, Netflix and hanging with friends.
While in high school I (more or less successfully) studied some Spanish and spent a semester learning about South American culture. Therefore, I am more than excited to get a better and deeper understanding of the Peruvian and Bolivian cultural believes and values. Furthermore, have I always wanted to go trekking with a backpack, but to be honest, I´m probably most excited about meeting an alpaca!
After my gap year I want to study in the Netherlands, although I still have to choose wether it will either be International Business or Media and Communication.
Since I wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to recognize me in Miami I took the freedom to add a picture of me at our local outdoor shop with my new gear.
Can´t wait to meet you all!
Muchas Besos,
