Þórhildur Sigurðardóttir

Þórhildur Sigurðardóttir Hi!

My name is Þórhildur Sigurðardóttir and I am 17 years old, born 27. August 1994. I live in Iceland in a small town called Höfn í Hornafirði. I have a brother, who is two years older than I and he lives in Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. He is studying at the University of Iceland so I live alone with my parents. My mother works as baby-minder so it feels like I have many little brothers and sisters. My father works as a foreman in the fish processing plant Skinney Þinganes, which is the largest fish factory in the town. During the summertime I worked in Skinney Þinganes, I was both working in lobster and in the kitchen.

I’m in my second year in FAS focusing on natural science and I’m planning to graduate 2013. After college I don’t know what I want to study but before I go to university I want to travel around the world. My main hobbies are football, music and being with my friends. I’ve been playing football since I was 10 years old and it’s really fun. I like listening to music, for example I like R&B. I also played the baritone for 8 years, I’m not playing anymore because I don’t have time but when I was playing I was in a big-band and a brass band. Now I’m just teaching 3 students on trumpet. :)
