Hi students! My name is Taylor and I will be your new "auxiliar de conversa" for the next year. I'm 22 years old and am from the city of Durham in the state of North Carolina. I have also lived in the mountains in a small town in the state of Virginia. Both North Carolina and Virginia are in the south-eastern US. I went to college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) and love my school's team, the North Carolina Tar Heels. My favorite Tar Heel sport is basketball. I also enjoy watching and playing baseball. In college, I studied sociology and linguistics. Last summer, I studied at the university in Sevilla. I traveled a little bit, but this will be my first time in Galicia! Since I have never been to Galicia before, do you have any advice for me before I arrive? What are your favorite and least favorite parts about your village? I'm so excited to meet you all!
Here are a few pictures of where I'm from:
^This is Durham, where I was born and lived for a long time.
^Here's a map of the US with North Carolina highlighted.
^Like I said before, I love my university's basketball team. This is a picture of one of the most famous Tar Heels, Michael Jordan, when he went to school and played basketball for UNC.
^ Finally, here's a picture of me with my parents and younger brother on the day I graduated from college. My brother decided to be funny and wear my graduation hat for this picture.
