Hi! I'm Charlotte, an adventurous, open-minded and passionate 19-year-old Dane, who for a long time has had itchy feet to get out into the world, see new places and meet new people. I've always loved traveling, having traveled around a lot with my parents and twin brother throughout my childhood, and recently gone to Tanzania as a volunteer and interrailed through Europe with a friend, something that has only nurtured my interest in learning about other cultures and ways of life completely different from my own. Which is why after graduating high school and working non-stop for half a year I bought a one-way ticket to New Delhi to explore India for a month and afterward continue through as much of Southeast Asia as possible.
I'm a hard worker and I'm definitely not afraid to get my hands dirty; having grown up on the countryside in mud and having helped build a school in Tanzania in 2016. Although I have no clue about what I want to do with my life later on, I'm really passionate about helping people, animals and the environment in any way I can, something I hope to incorporate a lot in my travels as well. Besides the volunteering work I did in Tanzania, I've worked as a volunteer in the Danish humanitarian organization "Mother's Help" for three years, as well as having helped refugee and immigration children with their English, Danish and mathematics homework for six months. I love both children and animals, having babysat since the age of 10, as well as being a happy vegan.
I would absolutely love to help you out in any way I can, and I can't wait to work with and learn from you!

I'm very flexible and open to any kind of work. I'm a quick learner, and promise to do my absolute best. I have experience with children (infant to teen) and animals (especially dogs), and I can cook (I love cooking vegan food and have worked in a kitchen for 6 months), clean and do any other chores around the house. I love nature and the outdoors and can help with any farming, building or other outdoors project, if you show me what to do. I've taugh children before and will be more than happy to teach in English. Although I'm not the most talented artist ever, I am very creative and love to paint, draw and write, having designed a Peter Pan children's room with a wall mural as well as having helped design the interior of a bed and breakfast.

I feel like I would be lying if I didn't mention that I fell on skis back in 2015 and ripped my meniscus and ligament in my left knee, resulting in two operations in 2017. And although my knee isn't 100% perfect again - and severely overworking it will hurt - I've reached a point where I can do almost everything I could before, and hard labour isn't a problem as long as I don't have to hike 20 km every day or lift extremely heavy things for 12 hours a day. Most days and in most situations my knee won't be a problem at all, and so I hope it won't affect your decision about taking me in :)
