Who I am… Name: Andreia Santos; Age: sixteen; Address:PêroPinheiro, Sintra (Lisbon); E-mail: androxa_94 @hotmail.comAbout me: I’m a very energetic and outgoing person, but in the beginning I’m very shy andnot too much talkative. I’m funny, and I make my friends laugh all the time;They say that I am really crazy. I have a strong personality and I can really describemyself as being spontaneous, because nobody knows what will come out of mymouth. I am a generous and sensitive person and for me there is more happiness ingiving than there is in receiving, because when I help or give something to someone, Ifeel happy to get a smile and a thank you. It´s a feeling that fulfils me. Sometimes Ican be quite grumpy, when I think Im right even if nobody else shares my opinion, andI can also be very lazy when I have to do things that I don´t like.Things I like: When I have nothing to do, I like going to the beach just to meditate and see thewaves breaking on the rocks. I stay there the whole afternoon watching the movementof waves, coming and going, it gives me a feeling of infinite pleasure. But the best isthe sunset. That big ball in the horizon, touching the line of the sea and reflecting itstones of red and orange. I really can’t describe the feeling. It´s so perfect, It´severything.I love music, it is a passion. It´s something that completes me. I listen to all kinds ofmusic. I play the guitar and that´s a way of showing my feelings.My best friend is Cheila, she´s one of the most important ones to me. She´s someonethat I can really say that is a true friend and she is like a sister. I love going shopping, who is the girl that doesn´t love it?I like acting, and I had the opportunity to have had three years of theatre lessons. Ilearned many things and it was a good experience. I´m so crazy about chocolate and candies, I can spend a day eating that junk food,but I do that just once in a while because at the end of the day my stomach really hurtsme!Animals mean a lot to me, actually I have two cats and they are adorable. One of myfavourite animals is the monkey; they are very intelligent and I love their peculiarsound! Now you know who I am… And the things I like…

Profile SheetName: Rodrigo JuliãoBirthday: 10th August 1994Email: email@example.comAbout me: Hello there, I live in a town called Fontanelas, I live mostly with mymother and my sister, and sometimes I visit my father. I have three dogs, onerabbit, two canaries and a lot of chickens to take care of.I’m studying to become a psychologist and help other people beyond theirphysical problems. The human mind is an interesting dimension.If we move away from the “school atmosphere” I can say I’m pretty much asimple “farm boy” who loves to go for long walks in the woods, but I’ll talk aboutit later.My dream is to travel around the whole world, see and experience almosteverything our world has to offer, I don’t care how I will do it, or the time it willtake, but when I’m older at least I’ll be able to say: “Hey, I was there once.”Hobbies: If we count it as a normal weekend day it goes pretty much like this: Iwake up, turn on the computer and go outside while eating breakfast, feed thechickens and play with the dogs. Fetch, Tag and Fight, are their favourite games,it’s very comforting to have such friendly animals. After that, I spend the rest ofthe morning on the computer. I enjoy playing all sorts of games.Since I have three dogs to keep healthy, I go out and walk a few miles, findinginteresting places in the woods, hang around a river, stare at the ocean and go inrotten abandoned houses. I know it may sound a bit childish, but it’s undeniablyfun. ☺
