Hello there! My name is Suzanne and I am 23 years old. I am living in the Netherlands, but I speak Dutch, English and German, although I am trying to learn French (again) and Spanish. Recently I got my Bachelor’s of Economics and Business Economics. I use to read in both English and Dutch, so a pen pal who reads in English would be the best.
I would love to write about the everyday life, but also common book interests. At first I would prefer to use the Goodreads messages to correspond. My hobbies are reading, cross-stitching, drawing, watching series like Arrow/Flash/Mom/How I met your mother/ etc. At the moment I am into the Kiera Cass “Selection” books – yes a little late I admit, but it is never too late to discover new books!
Please send me a PM if you’d like to become a pen pal!
