Hi there! I am currently looking for a place to work at with a small salary to fund my travel expenses, preferably in the sunny outdoors and involving animals.
I'm a fun and adventure-loving young lady which enjoys making social contact as well as spending time alone outdoors. While an active lifestyle inspires me, at the same time I also love to take responsibility in organising and managing different things. Friends and co-workers would describe me as calm and logical and I would say that I enjoy both a mix of socialising having some time working alone.
What motivates me the most is seeing the results of my hard work! I always give my best to make a positive change in the work place.
My hobbies include but are not limited to horse-riding, working out, hiking, reading, composing my own musical pieces (I used to play the clarinet, piano and flute) and exploring new places.

More details about your skills
As well as perfecting my existing skills, I am very eager to acquire new ones!
I graduated from an international high school program for the gifted with both the German and French A-levels in July 2021.
I speak English, German and French fluently (above C1 level). On top of that, I love learning new languages and know some basic conversational elements of Italian, Greek and Swedish.
I came first in a French language competition in my state, competing against native speakers.
ANIMATION & ENTERTAINMENT
From July to October 2021, I was working as Fitness and Kids Club Animator in four different five-star hotels on the Greek islands of Kos, Zakynthos and Corfu.
Throughout high school, I volunteered to tutor younger students in many different subjects as well as helping foreign students learn German.
Since my early childhood, I have learnt to play the clarinet, flute and piano as well as composing new pieces and playing by ear - I have perfect pitch.
I am lucky to share a young English Setter and a rabbit with my family. I have a great passion for caring for all kinds of animals, which is why I helped at an animal sanctuary in Germany in the summer of 2020.
I also have three German equestrian certificates - a riding certificate (beginner: basic dressage figures, riding in walk, trot, canter and gallop, being able to ride outside of the arena on my own or riding away from a group, as well as proper handling and tacking up), as well as one for groundwork (basics of lunging, properly leading horses over and around obstacles or in a certain way) and general horse care (knowledge about stable maintenance, cleaning, feeding horses, illness etc.).
On top of that, I have had loan ponies which I have ridden, exercised and cared for by myself.
More details about my language interests
I can teach English, French and German and would love to learn any new language!
What else ...
Even if there is something I cannot do yet, I am a fast learner and am willing to try out new things!
Also I prefer jobs with pocket money or the possibility to work extra paid hours as I need to fund my travels.
I have old self-harm scars on my arms but am now mentally stable and healthy. This has never been an issue with previous jobs!

Special dietary requirements
I follow a vegan lifestyle but occasionally change to vegetarian if not otherwise possible!
Thank you so much for having me stay for two weeks last summer, even though it was such a short period of time and in short notice.
I had an amazing time at the animal sanctuary. Of course it is hard work, but if you are doing this with the intention of putting your heart and soul into caring for the lives of the animals, it is
