Hi all! I'm Elisa, a 21-year-old English major from Finland. I recently finished my bachelor's degree at University of Turku and I'm spending a semester abroad here at Lake Forest College in the U.S., 30 miles north of Chicago, Illinois and focusing on my minors (North American Studies and Creative Writing). I both enjoy and mildly fear doing new things with my life, which brought me here. I look forward to learning more about American culture, meeting new people, finding cute coffee shops, wandering down the streets of Chicago, taking advantage of the selection of movies and shows on the U.S. Netflix and so on!
