My name is Tegz, I’m sixteen and live in sleepy South Wales in the UK. I live with my family, which comprises of my two crazy brothers, my wonderful parents, and my apathetic cat Cariad, that hates humans.
I am an army cadet in my spare time, (which involves lots of rain, mud and early mornings on the weekends), a grade 6 bassoonist, and I’ve just finished comprehensive school, where I was elected Head Girl, as well an EDSGC representative, peer mentor and all-round nerd.
I spend a lot of my time reading books (current favourite- On the Road by Jack Keroac), listening to far too much music, or protesting fracking with Greenpeace. I love to be outside more than anything, whether it be hiking with my dad or skiing in the winter with my friends. My passion is geography, because I find other cultures fascinating, and I’m a travel fanatic who is itching to explore and live!
Everything changed on May1st 2014, as I received confirmation that I had been accepted to study nearly 6,000 miles away in Hong Kong, in the Li Po Chun United World College there, with 250 other students- a world away from my Welsh roots! I invite you to join me as I venture boldly where no member of the Evans clan has ever ventured, and hope that together we can make this memorable!
Yours, Tegz xxx
