I'm Antoine, I'm 17 years old, and I live with my family in the north east of France. I'm very close with my little sister, she's very joyful and I take care of her as much as possible. I'm a bit shy at times, yet friendly and open-minded. I have a great relationship with my family and friends. We have a tabby cat and I like cats better than dogs because they are more independent. I currently study economy and political science and would like to continue when I get back to France and my English has improved from this exchange. I have been a "Scout of France" since I was six and most of my friends are also scouts. We enjoy making our own fixie bicycles. I also have played tennis since I was six years old.
