Hi, my name is Mae, I am 10 years old and I am in Year 6.  My teacher this year is Miss Squire and Year 6 is amazing! 

I joined BIS Abu Dhabi, along with my two younger brothers, in 2018 and I have enjoyed every moment of it.  I come from Herefordshire in the U.K. which is famous for its beef and fruit farms.  It’s a lot greener there, than it is in Abu Dhabi, but I really like living here, because I get to swim everyday.  

I love swimming and I am currently on the Falcon Swim Team. I also train with Neptunes Swim Academy and I enjoy competing in triathlons and cycling races, so sports takes up a lot of my spare time.  When I do have some free time, I like reading a lot. My favourite author is Lemony Snicket, but I enjoy any mystery book.  I like to draw and I get lots of inspiration from watching my favourite artists on YouTube. 

I hope that one day I can compete competitively for my country in swimming and then write a book about it!
