My name is Íris and I’m from Iceland. I went on my exchange in 2018-19 in Washington state, US with an agency which wasn’t AFS because I’m a traitor like that. I got dragged into AFS by a friend who went at the same time on exchange with AFS and guilt tripped me with the fact there were no volunteers here in Iceland and I’ve been here ever since. I am currently double majoring in linguistics and political science at the University of Iceland but hopefully I will be able to study somewhere else as soon as I can and leave this tiny island!  I’m planning on studying international relations for my masters somewhere in Europe.

I’m very excited for PEACE and meeting you all!
