My name is Andrea McDonald. I was born in Germany but spent most of my life in California and Cork, Ireland. Currently, I am living in California with my college best friend.

I went to University College Cork, Ireland, majoring centre for policy study. I had no idea what to choose at first, but one day out of the blue I wanted to study about the policy. I wanted to know how a policy was actually made. So, I decided to take that program. Graduated two years ago and now I am taking my master degree in the University of Southern California majoring Global public policy. It has been a year since I left Cork.

Moving to a new place is like having a new adventure. Coincidently, the adventure has always been my passion. Photography is another passion that I have. While travelling to new places, I love to get in touch with the local people and learn about their ways of life.

In my spare time, I like to play my musical instruments: the piano, the clarinet, the saxophone and the flute. Once, I joined a band in high school, and I would like to play again in a band. In winter I like to go skiing and snowboarding. In the summer I like hiking, cycling and travelling.

Now, I am also writing a blog. I found this hobby quite fascinating. My writing is about everything that interests me. So, welcome to my blog.
