Lilja is 17 yrs old. She is an optimistic and outgoing young woman who can't wait to try new things in the US! She has been an active member of her cheer leading squad for the last four years, and she recently took on the challenge of coaching a team of younger girls. Lilja loves being outdoors; she enjoys hiking and going for long walks in the woods with her dog Lucas. At home, she makes her family laugh and helps out around the house. She's a hardworking student who especially enjoys her English and social studies classes. She thinks she'd like to join the Norwegian military after she finishes high school. Sample photo, not actual student.
