Kat’s Bio

✧・゚: *✧・゚:* my little autobiography *:・゚✧*:・゚✧

(audio version)

Hi! There are a few things you should know about me…

    My name is Katarina. There aren’t really any specific connotations tied to my name, however I know that my first name has Greek and Scandinavian origins.

    I have lived all my life in the United States. My parents have relatives in Europe but I’m not exactly sure where. I was born in the spring of 2004 and I don’t have any siblings. I’ve lived in New York my entire life, but I have wanted to live in the countryside ever since I was little. My parents and I often travel to our relatives in Staten Island and upstate New York. I’ve traveled to many different countries, including Austria, Belgium, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Germany. I can speak Spanish, French, Czech, and a little bit of Japanese (I’m still learning that one). I enjoy learning new languages because it helps me understand the country’s culture on a deeper level.

    I’ve always attended school in Manhattan. I have extremely fond memories of elementary and middle school. Harvest Collegiate is not the first high school that I have studied at – I actually transferred to Harvest as a sophomore after spending one year (9th grade) at another high school. I really love all of the schools I went to since I was able to meet so many amazing people!

    I love drawing, especially drawing characters and comics. I’m also quite fond of reading as well as writing in my free time. I’m currently really interested in practicing archery, and I find tournaments really fun. Aside from all that, I also love traveling and learning about history. Most days I prefer to sit at my desk with my laptop and read. I really like the works of Alexander Dumas, specifically his novel, The Count of Monte Cristo. I also enjoy reading the works of Dazai Osamu, and the manga series Bungou Stray Dogs (which is a series depicting lots of influential Japanese authors with a modernized twist). I also often find myself doing crafts such as knitting, crochet, and embroidery (I’ve recently picked up that hobby since I love doing quiet crafts like sewing). I also enjoy writing essays, which, to some might sound a bit strange, but analyzing and interpreting different works of literature in my own way is one of my favorite things to do.

    My family is really important to me. My mom and my dad have always been extremely supportive, and I’ll always be really thankful for that. I also love visiting all of my other relatives every summer. We have so much fun. :>

    I consider myself extremely lucky to have been able to have the chance to meet so many wonderful people this year, and I look forward to having an amazing educational experience here at Harvest Collegiate.
