    Hey there! (:

    I’m Fanni, 22 years old student originally from Finland but currently studying French and Anthropology in Ireland. In my childhood my family travelled quite a bit in Europe and that's how I became intrigued by cultures and languages. When it is possible, I try to stay a bit longer period in one country because it helps to understand the place better. In summer 2019 (June-August) I'm travelling to France to do preferably volunteer work that involves customer service (but I'm also open to other kinds of tasks!), explore the country and improve my oral French skills before the start of my final year in September.

    I’m an open and active person, and I'm interested in many things; the more I learn about something, the better I want to understand it. I love learning languages; I can spend hours listening to music and reading news in a new language. I don’t shy away from challenges but rather seek to step out of my comfort zone. When I have a goal, I’m determined to work hard to achieve it. I love visiting new places and having good conversations that give new perspectives on life. In my free time I enjoy photographing, listening to music, running and cooking with my friends. Also, I make upcycled jewelry from broken jewelry, belts, old pocket calendars or other materials that I happen to find.

    This is my first time as a workawayer, but I've some experience of volunteer work at a recycling-themed camp in Croatia and at a few festivals in Finland. l'll be happy to tell more about myself and my work experience or plan travels in France together(:
