What is your favorite TV series? I love all crime TV shows, but my favorites are Criminal Minds and Hawaii Five-0. I also like to watch Grey’s Anatomy and One Tree Hill.
Why did you choose London? I chose to come to London, because since I was young I loved coming here. My mom and dad used to bring us every summer to visit my family. All my extended family lives in England, and I enjoy spending as much time with them as I can. Last summer I studied abroad in London, and I had another internship. That’s when I knew I wanted to move here once I graduated college. I’m excited to meet new people and learn about different cultures in these next 3 months at EC London.
