My name is Mara, I am 20 years old and currently living in the beautiful capital of Austria named Vienna!
After having graduated from high school in June 2019 I took a gap year to gain some life experience and improve my language skills by exploring the world and meeting new people.
During that gap year, lucky me had the chance to spend five months with lovely hosts in Germany France, Sweden and Greece - mostly on farms or at family homes with animals. During these stays, I made some of the most precious memories of my life.
In October 2020 I moved from Feldkirch – a small town in the west of Austria where I grew up – to Vienna and started to work in residential homes for people with disabilities as well as in personal assistance. Since I’m really enjoying these occupations in the social sector, I’ll start to study social work in October 2021.
Now I'm looking for a farm or an animal sanctuary in the South of Europe where I can stay for about four weeks and offer all my help & love.
I'd consider myself a patient, relaxed, open-minded, and caring person. I'm very optimistic and always try to focus on the good in any situation and to see the best in every human being.
I can't wait to pack my suitcase and get to know y'all !
Informationen regarding COVID-19:
Due to my work I'm already vaccineted :)
During my gap year, I had the chance to gain experience and learn new things in several fields such as:
*taking care of horses and assisting in therapy lessons on a horse therapy farm
*different kinds of farmwork such as repairing fences, cleaning stables, driving a tractor, ...
*a bit of painting
*taking care of dogs and cats by working on an animal sanctuary
While working as a disabled carer and personal assistant I learned how to treat all kinds of human beings in a respectful and loving way. This work also thought me - besides knowledge in medication, psychology and pedagogy - to stay calm in stressful situations, keep a clear mind and be extremely patient. Apart from that, my clients remind me every day to enjoy the little things and be thankful for all the opportunities life has to offer.
