Through Workaway, I want to get involved in projects that take me out of my comfort zone and enrich my life with new encounters and cultures. I really want to learn new skills while improving my English and German speaking skills.
Travelling allows me to discover more about myself and the world around me. Every trip I have made so far since I was young has given me many memories and experiences ! 🌍

Mehr Infos zu meinen Sprachinteressen
French is my mother tongue and I can speak English and German with an intermediate level. When I was younger, I used to speak fluently Vietnamese with my family but I lost most of it with time since I started to learn French/German/English at school : I still have very good listening skills so I’m ALWAYS down to practice more this language and the others as well!!!

Was könntest du arbeiten?
- Don't really have any experience in farming, gardening and construction,
BUT I am very motivated and curious to learn new skills and help as I can ! I did learn lots of new skills in building and gardening while staying one month in an Austrian farm though😊!
- Love cooking and learning new recipes at home
- Like participating in creative activities (drawing, photography, audiovisual, painting)
In high school, I also carried on the elaboration of the yearbook by writing some articles and I created a website for the school’s art collection with interviews, audioguides and magazines.
- Coached for the past two years a volleyball team of 20 children aged 8-13.
It was an experience I really enjoyed. (So I would also be open to share one of my childhood hobbies through some volleyball sessions hihi😝😝)
- Love trying and learning about new skills I'm not used to
- Laugh really easily 🤭!
- Open-minded about diversity of culture and people 🌸💫🌏🌈
Was noch ...
In my free time, I love practicing sport! I have played several sports such as :
- a Vietnamese martial arts for more than 10 years
- tennis for 6 years
- skiing since my 3 years old
- volleyball for 4 years as a coach, player and referee
A short anecdote…💫
I went on a trip to Siberia when I was 11 years old with a group of ten children aged 8-15 years old with a professor at the EPFL and a journalist from RTS (Swiss Radio Television). You can still find some interviews on the internet !
At the moment, I'm creating my personal website to retrace my journey with pictures and videos :) If you’re curious, you can have a look on : tamhuynh.ch
Feel free to contact me ! I’m keen for new encounters and projects hihi 🥰
