Leïla’s life !
Her name is Leïla, she’s 23 years old and she’s from Jersey, an island in the United Kingdom. Her birthday is January 15th. Her father is from Sudan and her mother is from England so she has mixed origins just like her 3 brothers and her sister.

She can speak English and a few words of Arabic.
Her favorite film is “A Knight Tale” which is an English film, she likes reggae from the 60’s, the series “West world” and the color blue. Her favorite place is the Highlands because she went often there with her friends. She loves Vietnamese food and the “Jersey Royal” which are potatoes from Jersey.
