Name Lukas Benjamin Buchberger

Age 16

City Eichenau, Germany

I live in the southern part of Germany where we get a lot of snow in winter. I love building snowmen, having snowball fights with friends and snowboarding.

I live in Eichenau, about 20km from Munich. It's known as the 'Garden Town' because of the beautiful landscapes and lakes around.

There's never much traffic around the town, so children can safely walk or ride a bike to school.

I study four languages at school - German, Latin, English and French. I also study maths, physics, biology, geography, economy, history, religion, sport and music.

When I go out with my friends, we go swimming, climbing, fishing or to the cinema. I also enjoy reading, watching television and playing on the computer.

I have visited Italy, Greece, England, Egypt, Austria and Switzerland. I've also travelled around Germany, but this is my first time in Hong Kong.

After leaving Hong Kong, I will return to Germany to start university - but I'm still not sure what subject to major in yet.
