Louise Swanepoel graduated from UT in May 2008, with a double major in German and English. She comes from South Africa, and has been living in the US for about ten years, the last four of which have been in Texas. All in all, she enjoys living in Austin, but like the Liberal Arts major she is, wants to go travel the world and probably live in Europe one day. She is interested in all things language-related, and wants to learn far too many new languages – spoken ones and dead ones. Working on the TGDP could not have made any other person happier. In her free time (such as it is, when school's in session), she enjoys reading, writing, being outdoors, seeing good movies and listening to music in languages she doesn't understand.
