My name is Iris Spruit and I am from the Netherlands. I have been living in Leiden, a town in the west of the Netherlands, for a year now, where I study Japanese. Next year I am also going to study psychology. I play the violin and I am in a student orchestra. Before I moved to Leiden, I lived with my parents in a small village in the norh of the Netherlands.
When I finished high school I went travelling with a friend for 6 months. This is how I came to love travelling, meeting new people and other cultures. I have never been to Japan, so I am really excited to go. I hope to improve my English and Japanese speeking skills and I hope to learn a lot about other cultures and ofcourse have a lot of fun!
