My Bio

Hej!! This is how you say hello in Sweden, my home for the next few months. My names Erilyn Read, and I’ll be spending my junior year in Sweden!! I’m from Tallahassee, Florida and currently a student at Leon High School. I live with my mom, dad, and younger brother. Some of my hobbies are spending time with my best friends, playing my ukulele, and enjoying life. I’m going to miss my friends and family, being so close to the best college football team in the US (Go Noles!!), and having the best theme parks and beaches at the tip of my fingers. However, I’m extremely excited to start this new chapter of my life. As an exchange student, I seek to improve my knowledge on other cultures, and improve other people’s knowledge on mine. It is so important for people to be kind and loving in this world, and putting yourself in new places can help you understand them, and reach that goal of unity. I’m also not mad about living somewhere that actually appreciates hockey, unlike Florida. I’m also not a huge fan of the cold. Well, I’m not a fan of what Florida calls “cold weather.” I’ve never even seen snow! But I’m so willing to adjust to my new home and its surroundings. Cheers to new beginnings (: Vi ses senare!
