Hi :) My name´s Conny and I´m 23 years old.
I study environmental sciences and nature conservation at the university of Freiburg in Germany. Since uni starts in october I have the whole september free to do some workaway again.
I already had some amazing workaway experiences in 2015 in Hawaii and Panama and 2017 in England.
In my free time I like to go running in the forest, I dance hip hop and writing is my passion. I work at a zero waste organic grocery shop which is a lot of fun. Before I moved to Freiburg to study I worked on a ponyfarm, where I gave riding lessons to childen.
In uni I studied all sorts of environmental stuff (chemistry, biology, maths, statistics etc) and at the moment I investigate ground-nesting bees for my bachelor thesis.
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Before I moved out to come to Freiburg for uni (I am originally from Munich) I worked on a ponyfarm. I took care of the horses and taught children how to groom, ride and look after the ponies in general. So I´m good with kids ;)
Now I work at the first zero waste store in Freiburg, it only sells unpackaged organic food :) I´ve also worked in a café and in a bakery in the past, so I´m used to working with customers and learning quickly.
English, German and a tiny bit of French and Spanish
I feel like we don´t learn anything about permaculture, sustainable farming etc. in my studies (environmental sciences) which I´m really interest in and want to learn about. So I thought workaway would be a good idea to get some practical experience and get to know new places and people :)
