Karen Björg Halldórsdóttir Hello

My name is Karen Björg Halldórsdóttir and I turned 17 in September. I live in Höfn with my family. I have lived here my whole live. I‘m the second oldest of four siblings. My father, Halldór Bragi Gíslason, 40 years old is a fisherman and my mom, Eydís Dóra Einarsdóttir, 39 years old works in a small florist. My oldest sister, Sigrún Ellen Pálsdóttir, 22 years old works in a small junk and my little sister and brother, Bryndís Arna Halldórsdóttir, 14 years old and Gísli Örn Halldórsson, 12 years old doesn‘t work, they only go to the primary school. We have one dog called Torres, a chiwawa.

My main hobby is football but I‘m also interested in fashion, travelling and just hanging with my friends. In the summertime I train football five to six times a week, it depense on how many games we play each week. I play with the premier team of Höfn and also in my age group, so I play a lot of games over the summer. In the winter time we get long time off from football.

During the summer I worked at the largest freezing plant in town but now in the winter I work there at the weekends. I study at FAS and have been there for a year and going to be there two years more. I‘m studying natural science courses and maybe in future I want to be a dentist or an arcitect.
