theplaceforpenpals:

Hello everyone, My name is Odile, I’m 16 years old (I’ll turn 17 in april!) and I’m from the Netherlands.

I’m obviously sending in a submission because I would love to be someone’s pen pal :). I just enjoy getting to know new people from different cultures. I don’t care for age/race or gender, the only thing that matters is that you’re a nice person :). I’m very shy, so I’m kinda nervous about submitting this thingie hahah! Well, I guess you should shoot me a message if you would like to chat and I’ll try to answer asap! 

A little more about me

So I’m in my fifth year in high school right now, which means I still have one year left. In my country we have different levels in high school education and since I’m blessed with intelligence, I was placed in the highest. This also means that I follow a lot more classes than most kids do: English, German, Greek, French, Latin, Dutch, maths, arts, social studies, philosophy, history, ancient history, PE, Dutch literature and economics. I would love to improve my German, French and English by communicating with a pen pal!
When I’m done with school I want to study philosophy and Arabic studies or Law (haven’t made my mind up about the last two though). In my spare time I enjoy dancing (ballet), acting, traveling, sports (tennis, field hockey, volleyball and track), hanging out with my friends, reading, painting, writing and going on adventures.
My home situation is kind of difficult, due to some events that occurred in the past. I’m not really comfortable talking about it where everyone can read it, but I think that whoever wants to start contacting me should know that snail mail won’t be possible since my foster family is kind of strict about those kind of things (it’s already a miracle they let me use the internet).
