Hello, I'm Anna. I am 19, from the UK and new to Workaway. I am currently having a gap year before beginning my studies in September, and I'm looking for an opportunity to live somewhere different and have new experiences in the UK from May, after I finish at my current job. Having really enjoyed six months as an au pair in France, I am keen to meet new people and have an insight into different ways of life here in my own country, which I know to be so varied and beautiful!
I am a quiet person but I am learning to be more confident and to love adventure! I enjoy reading, knitting, yoga, cooking and playing with children. I also love to spend time outdoors - running, walking and cycling - and I hope to discover new landscapes whilst doing Workaway - I have just got a new pair of hiking boots!
I am interested in sustainable and environmentally-friendly ways of living: I have been a vegetarian for many years and I am always looking for new ways to reduce my use of plastic and creation of waste.
Ideally, I am looking for a Workaway experience of about a month which will allow me to help you with a variety of things - whether this be gardening, cooking, childcare or helping to run a hostel.
I have good people skills and I am great at communicating: I thrive on working in a team with others.
I have some experience and understanding of gardening, sustainability etc but not a lot - mostly I am just hard-working and very keen to learn on the job!
I have lots of experience with children (especially after having spent six months with a family with a two-year old little boy and a five-year old girl) and love to be around them.
I also am very capable of helping with household things - cleaning, tidying etc - and I enjoy cooking so would be happy to help with this!
As well as English, I speak a good level of French, having lived in France for six months.
I have good computer skills, ability to use technology.
I am an enthusiastic, determined and committed person.
Most importantly, I am always eager to learn new skills, discover new interests and experience different ways of living.
Französisch: Gute Kenntnisse
I am really excited to explore the UK through Workaway and I hope to meet new people and have new adventures. I hope you will consider me as your new Workawayer! Thank you.
