About Me

CURRENT MISSION

TO BE EVERYWHERE

ABOUT ME

I am 23 and from Yorkshire in the north of England!! I graduated in Hispanic and Latin American Studies from the University of Liverpool in 2014. My studies shaped my interests in politics, anthropology and history. I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese and at the moment I am trying my hand at Danish (jet kan tale lidt dansk). I like doing crafty things like making poetry and art. I am interested in human rights activism and Nordic Noir : ) I currently live in Guanajuato Capital in the state of Guanajuato in Mexico! If you're passing through, give me a shout!!

PHILOSOPHY

I live for learning about Latin America and drinking a good cup of tea :D
