Getting to know me

Black, yellow, red. The colors of the Belgian flag. I am from Belgium, and I am staying here for a few years to study to major which is Criminal Justice.

I chose this pictures of my spikes because I love running track. I am in the track team, and it is a really big part of my life. I spend more time out on the track or in the weight room than that I spend time home to relax.

It is always nice to know who the person is that is writing the blog you are reading. So that is why I uploaded a picture of myself so you know who am, and not just know my name. I love traveling, and this picture is taken in Mexico last Winter break.

On this picture you can see me at my prom. I really love going out and party and have fun with friends. And the part I love the most: dressing up.

I love seeing the world, and visiting as much countries as possible. This picture represents my three-months exchange period in Egypt. I love the feeling of experiencing new cultures, and getting to know people all around the world.


  1. Your prom dress is so cute! I have not seen a dress like that before. I love the picture of you at Egypt because I knew a kid who was Egyptian. I think it is so cool that you do all these exchange periods in different countries.

  2. It's so cool that you're from Belgium. I visited once, a few years back, and it seems lovely there! Also that picture of you with the pyramid is adorable. Where else have you been?

  3. I like your pictures. I also like how you incorporate your background into this blog post. I am also from Germany myself but I moved here when I was 2 or 3 years old. Nice job my friend.

  4. Its pretty awesome that you went to Egypt and your pics are amazing. I hope to travel as much as you have.

  5. Absolutely adore your prom dress and that you enjoy traveling. I think it's really important to get out and see the world just so you know what it's like in other places. I also enjoy going out with my friends, it's good to just let loose every once in a while!

  6. Its really cool that you got to go to Egypt. You have nice pictures. I also like to travel.

  7. Topic sentence – Your topic sentence explains your personal thoughts, but does not provide enough background knowledge or attention-grabbing information on the subject.
    Support – Your support is mostly opinionated than actually factual. You also tend to repeat yourself many times when you are explaining the benefits of free education.
    Transitions – I don’t see many transitions in this blog post.
    Quote (in "quote sandwich" format with proper MLA citation) – That was a nice quote on education that you chose.
    Grammar and spelling – The spelling is fine, but the grammar makes many of your points confusing to read. More punctuation should be used.
    Strong argument: You include personal thought and passion into the argument, but it seems to opinionated as a blog to provide a strong background or issue with education.
    One compliment: I really like your topic. It reminds me of issues with education in other developing countries in Africa.
    One suggestion: You should include more statistics when it comes to free education, such as what a proper education brings (higher percentage of income, etc.).
