It's hard to describe yourself, isn't it? I'm quite a friendly person, confident...
My bio love is clothes and baas. I really im/Q sunglasses too. Besides I'm very loyal to my friends and I think I'm very helpful. I wouldn't say I'm quiet, but not noisy either. I love partying and having fun and I'm always cheerful in the morning. My friends say I've got a good head on my shoulders and I'm very witty and chatty at times. Some people might say I'm pretty bossv. 'cause if something needs to be said, I'll just come out with it. But I'm gentle and I haven't got a bad word to say about anybody!

I am going to tell you about myself. I think I am honest and reliable.
In fact, reliability is one of my main strengths. I always try to keep my promises and I never let my friends down.
I have a lot of interests inside and outside school. I like Maths Physics and I take extra classes in these subjects. But I also love dancing and listening to good music. I enjoy socialising and I think I'm pretty easy to get along with. I always try to be polite. Another passion of mine is animals. I have four pets at home: a cat, a dog, a hamster and a parrot. It's my responsibility to look after them, but that's a pleasure for me.
Like everyone else, I have weaknesses too. I am a bit too self-confident and sometimes I'm too quick to criticise others.
