What made you choose Northland?
It was determined by my school’s study abroad program.

What are your interests, sports and hobbies?

I am interested in arranging hair, dancing is my favorite sport, and basketball is my favorite sport to watch. My hobbies are too many to write about. Dancing is one of my hobbies, but I have never learnt it formally. 

What is your favourite local place to hang out with friends? 
Places where I can do bowling and sing karaoke.
