WRITINGS: A Description of Someone you Know Well

This is an example provided by the web Saber Inglés.
We have highlighted useful expressions when writing an essay.

About myself
(Sent by Cristina Ruiz, an advanced student from Madrid, Spain)

My name is Cristina. I'm in my twenties. I'm studying Information Science at university and I'm also job-hunting at the moment.
As for my personality, I consider myself as a shy but sociable person. I mean, the first time I meet someone I am not the one who starts a conversation but once the ice is broken I'm very sociable and friendly.
Apart from that, my friends say that I have my feet firmly on the ground, that is, I'm a realistic person and I know what my limits are.
As regards to my hobbies, I'm keen on swimming, reading and walking in the countryside. And also, I like going clubbing and partying.
