Hello dear host,
Thank for for checking out my profile.
I am Maja, 23 years old and from Germany.
At the moment I am a full-time International Business and Cross-Cultural Management student. On the side I am studying Chinese and Spanish. I live in a small but cozy city in the Netherlands.
Before I started university, I travelled from May 2015 - August 2018. During this time I covered a lot of ground between Kazakhstan and New Zealand.
I don't just love to travel, but see it as a necessity to learn and grow as a person. Travelling has hepled me so much to expand the mind and realise what this world offers.
Until this moment I have only used Workaway in Mongolia and Myanmar - they both were amazing places to interact with other interesting hosts and travellers. I can not wait to find out what experiences are waiting for me on this side of the world.
I am a quick learner and a self driven worker. In my current home town I am involved in charity work and fundraising.
Some other hobbies of mine:
Diving, pottery, reading, cooking.
I am hoping to get to know you in person.

- hosting the customer and make them feel welcome
- work under pressure
- intercultural communication
- skills in accounting, public speaking, marketing, business English
... building an eco village for hundreds of people from scratch in the middle of nowhere:
- living without leaving or creating waste
- use the scarce material available to build something purpose fulfilling
- hard physical work can be fulfilling
... life & travelling:
- be open and take any opportunity to learn
