     I believe that the culture you come from shapes your personality but doesn't define who you are. Ciao, my name is Benedetta and I come from Rome, Italy. I'm your classic Italian girl: loud, picky eater, loves pasta, uses hand gestures. Yes, stereotypes of my country are mostly accurate, except for the fact that we're always late, that's a major lie. Although these stereotypes may be part of me, they don't are me. It's unfortunately common, and it's a mistake I sometimes make too, to just look at the superficial side of people.

My Name is Filip Brůna, I am from the Czech Republic. I was born there and grew up there. The Czech Republic is a beautiful place for anyone to come and visit, although people may be a little toxic at times, I can guarantee you would have a grate time exploring the wonders of Prague and other Czech cities. They are full of history and wonderful food.

I am from Onsala, Sweden which is a small village on the southern west coast of Sweden. It has a history of farming and fishing but nowadays most people live in normal homes. I have lived at the same horse farm in my whole life; it is the same house that my mum grew up in and the same house her dad lived in his whole life too. Our house was moved in 1917 to where it stands now, earlier it had been a dairy in the same village since the 1850's. Our house and farm is full of history, Swedish farmer history that I am proud of.
