Why did you decide to come to Liverpool?
It was because of football, I’m a big fan of Liverpool and I’ve heard a lot of good things about the city from people who have been here before.

What is the biggest difference between Liverpool and your hometown?
The biggest difference is city life. I’m from the countryside and there is only about 2,500 people in my town. I like it better here because at home you can’t do anything without everyone knowing, here you can be yourself.

What is special about your home country?
The landscape, especially my home town there’s beautiful landscape everywhere.

What was the most exciting moment for you since you came to Liverpool?
It has to be my first football match. It was my first time seeing the reds play in Liverpool and my first Premier League game.

Is there anything that strikes you as odd since you’ve arrived in the UK?
It has to be what people wear on a night out. The girls wear nothing at all, the skirts are so short and the colours are bright. Every Saturday night it is like the girls are going to a ball.

What is your favourite place in Liverpool?
The Anfield area naturally. I went to see Liverpool play Burnley, Hull and the Champions League game, so I’ve been to every home match since I moved here 3 weeks ago.

Lene graduated in July 2012
