I'm 22, I already have a Bachelor degree for teaching English and history at high school and I'm currently trying for my Master in English Literature at university.
Cosplay doesn't seem so big in my country as it is in America (you guys have the most awesome conventions!), but I've met a couple of cosplayers at school and on conventions and we're going to the next event together
Cosplaying doesn't interfere with my academic life so far, but I'm currently in a VERY driven group so that might change
Outside of all that I'm a player at the iniversity theatre and I occasionally write.
