I am Jülide, but everbody calls me Julie! I am a 24 year-old student from Germany, currently studying education (my subjects are English and History). I love traveling and getting to know new people and new cultures, as I myself have grown up in a bi-cultural family (my dad grew up in Turkey while my mom was raised in Germany).
I spent last summer abroad doing workaway because I thought it would be a great way to really experience cultural exchange. It was an amazing experience I will never forget! When I was in 10th grade I also spent a year in the states, therefore I have had some experience in terms of adjusting to a new lifestyle and I have found it to be an incredible adventure.
I enjoy drawing/painting (or anything artsy, really) and sports, as I played team Handball for over 10 years. I have also been working as a server in a restaurant for almost 6 years now and I really love it. This type of work has taught me to keep my cool when things get hectic, so I am quite used to working in a busy environment. I also used to teach german to refugees in my hometown for over a year, which was a very rewarding and humbling task, and something I have come to be very passionate about. Overall, I think I am just an easy-going, creative, friendly and empathetic person, open to facing new challenges!
I also believe in respecting and accepting people, whatever their gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, skin color,etc. might be. Live and let live, love is love is love is love... That is something that is really, really important to me!

Looking forward to meeting you!
