Hello everyone! My name is Gloria and I am a 16-year-old ‘citizen of the world’ living in Washington in the United States!
I speak Russian, which I gained during a trip to Ukraine to visit my family when I was little. Unfortunately, my reading and writing in Russian are pretty much non-existent, so I am working on bringing those skills up to my speaking level. I learned some German at home from my parents when I was younger, but much of it hasn’t stuck with me, however, I definitely think I will continue with the language in the future. I am currently learning French in high school and have taken my learning somewhat into my own hands (per necessity), which has been a fun learning experience as it is the first language I have fully thrown myself into learning a new language. I have been self-studying Korean for a few months now, and so far have been really enjoying it, though maybe a little too much since I have been neglecting my other languages for this new exciting one!
This community seems to be so welcoming, kind, and willing to help and I am very excited to be part of the Polyglot Conference for the first time this year! I would love to get to know you all, so feel free to comment if you are learning any of these languages (or any others for that matter) and we can support each other in this crazy journey we are on to learn about the world!
