Hello together! I'm Alena, 23 years old and I live in Freiburg, Germany. At the moment I study music education and singing. I'm an open-minded person and I really like meeting new people. Exchanging about different cultures or ways of living is very important so that we always stay open-minded and learn from each other. I would describe myself as a flexible person who is interested in different ways of living. I'm convinced that diversity is very important for our Life so I hope that we always try to stay open minded, avoid prejudices and categories and learn from each other.
At the moment I study music so I'm very interested about education systhems and how to convey music to ceate contact between different people. I love to sing, write my own songs in german, a gengre called "Liedermacher*innen", and perform them with my best friend, solo or with other people who like to join. :-)
I also like playing the piano and the ukulele or try my best at the trumpet... :D
Being in nature and active is another big part of my life. I like doing sports, regularly I go running and since last spring2020 I'm addicted to mountainbiking. Furthermore, I love hiking, travel with the bike or spent some nights outside.
In other times, I also love going out with friends, having a beer or dance.
Reading is also a part of my life which I really enjoy and besides I try to integrate meditation and some yoga into my life. :-)
At the moment I'm searching for alternative ways to live. I made some experiences on workaway where I could meet people, who search for way of living, responsable and careful with nature and our given resources. Thats what I would like to experience more, to exchange, to communicate and to learn from each other.

More details about your skills
I study music education and singing. It would be a pleassure to teach some basics of music. I worked with different groups, a small choir or students in singing.
Also being creative in different things and go into a creative prozess with people is something I really enjoy.
I'm practised to do the household or spend time with kids, as I have two young half brothers, did some child care and taught music in kindergarden.
And if you need a simple haircut I'd be very happy to help! :D But no promise that it's going to look professional but I've done some aceptable experiences so far... :p
Farmwork is quite new for me, but I worked on a farm for 5 weeks and I really enjoyed it. This is also a reason why I'm here. So I'm really willing to learn and help wherever I can and I'd be very thankful to go into an exchange!

Special dietary requirements
I'm a strict vegetarian who tries to eat vegan if the circumstances allow it. At home I always cook vegan but I like to adapt if I'm a guest somewhere that's why I'm not doing it super consequent at the moment.
The people in this place creates a very welcoming and open-minded atmosphere. This is a thing for which stands for: thinking about future perspectives and still being an open-minded, welcoming place, with diverse people. I really liked to see
