María Hjördís Karlsdóttir


My name is María Hjördís Karlsdóttir and I am 16 years old. I was born on December 23rd. I have two sisters, Guðlaug Jóna  18 years old, she is an assistance chef at Kaffi Hornið and studies at FAS and will graduate next year. Nanna Guðný is 12 years old, she does not have a job but she practices soccer and athletics. She goes to the elementary school. 

My mother, Kristín Gyða Ármannsdóttir, works in Skinney-Þinganes as a foreman. My dad, Karl Ágúst Guðnason, also works at Skinney-Þinganes as a shift foreman and at the workshop. I am a gymnastics coach in the winter and in the summer I work at Skinney-Þinganes. Skinney-Þinganes is a fish factory in Höfn.

I live with my family in a small town on the south-east coast of Iceland, called Höfn. I practice soccer with the premier team in Höfn called Sindri. I have practiced soccer since I was 10 years old. Soccer is my main hobby but I also like snowboarding, volleyball and hanging out with family and friends. During the summer I practice soccer, work at Skinney-Þinganes and travel with my family. I'm on my second year in FAS, which is the college in Höfn, and my plan is to graduate in the spring of 2015.
