Post Introduce Yourself!
Hello to the people that have made it this far! I've noticed whilst looking at the other years that there has never been a thread to introduce ourselves and although some people may think its a stupid idea I think it might be quite fun to learn a little bit about eachother.
I don't mean for you to write your life history but general things like: name, age, what you are currently doing (eg. studying, part/full time job), what you enjoy doing in your spare time, what your hoping to do at camp (eg. counsellor or camp power) and anything else you can think of.

So I'll go first:
My name is Rhiannon although everyone calls me Rhi, I'm 22 years old, live in Wales, am currently in my 3rd year of studying English at University, hoping to start teacher training next year and I work part time as a veterinary receptionist. In my spare time I run my own youth group, enjoy going to the cinema and hanging around with my friends. At camp I'm hoping to be a counsellor.

Awesome idea :D

I'm Becca and I'm 17 (Big night out in Newcastle for my 18th in April !).
I am currently studying Childcare && Education Level 3. I love it even though it is really hard work ! But it means I get the chance to go to placement twice a week and work with the kids :)

I haven't got a job atm but I'm trying to change this (which is very hard in today economical climate :( )

I love shopping, even though I hardly ever have money since all I get is £10 a week for my EMA :(

I have short brown hair (Dying it dark brown this weekend), I'm about 5ft6 and slim. Usually I wear my contact lenses but sometimes I wear my glasses (Once in America I will probably be mostly wearing my glasses as it's easier)
I love reading. Love all books as long as if they have a bit romance in them ;)

&& that's about it ! :D

I'm Esther and I'm 18 and I've just started my first year at Worcester University and loving every minute!! I'm studying Early Childhood Studies which I'm really enjoying.
It's my first time applying for camp america, although I've wanted to do it for a couple of years now. Cannot wait to get placed, hopefully as a general/cabin counsellor as I don't really have any specifc skills :)

Oooh ok :P

I'm Vikki...just turned 21 last week. From Dundee, Scotland. I'm doing Politics at Dundee Uni, but taking a year out to go travelling etc. - do camp america. I also work in a little cafe :)

I like road trips, sarcasm, tattoos, music, funny accents, stand-up comedy, disney films and fishbowl cocktails.
I don't like the dentist, early mornings, rude people and films that don't have a happy ending :)

Helllooo!! I'm Jess, I'm from Cardiff and I'm in my second year studying English at UWIC.

I love cheesy chick lit, blossom hill white zinfandel and working at a primary school with my class of not-so-little 9 year olds.

I hate Monday mornings, getting the bus and ignorant people

Nice to 'meet' you all! :D

Hi! :)

I am super excited to be on here finally!

My name is Caitlin, I'm only 17 at the moment, turning 18 in February! I'm in 1st year at Glasgow Uni studying Anatomy (although my subjects are actually Biology and Theatre Studies!!) I live in Loch Lomond, which is about 20 minutes outside Glasgow City Centre.
I spend most of my spare time rehearsing and performing shows with a theatre company in Glasgow which I absolutely love!

I'm looking forward to camp so much, wanted to do it since I was about 13 but I'm a little bit worried about how much I'm going to miss my puppy Charlie! :oops:
