My name is Erika and I just started my senior year at Boston College over in the United States. I am very excited to be your pen pal! A little bit about myself - I am an only child, so I live with just my mom (when I go home from college for holiday breaks). I have a 6-year-old dog named Freckles who has a TON of energy. I am a pescetarian, so the only meat I eat is fish. At school, I am studying communication - which teaches me about the media and its impact on society, and human development - which is the study of people and why they behave the way they do. What are your interests? What is your family like? What do you like to do with your free time?

The most important things in my life are my friends, my family, and my morals. In my free time, I usually meet a friend for coffee or lunch because I think it is very important to form close relationships with the people who surround you. I am very close with both of my parents and do my best to call or e-mail home everyday. 

When I say that my morals are important to me, I mean sticking to what I know is right for me, even when other people disagree. I have been some form of a vegetarian for eight years, but I still respect when others do not make that decision for themselves. It has become a part of who I am, and I am proud of myself for sticking to my own beliefs, no matter what. What is most important to YOU?

I look forward to hearing back from you soon!

Take care,
